Re: [HTCondor-users] Job Realtime output file

Hello Kent,

I've been already trying "stream_output", I'm sure I’m doing something wrong. Here's my condor job file:


universe = grid
grid_resource = batch sge gmarco@cacique
executable = bwa.sh

output = bwa.out
error = bwa.err
log = bwa.log

should_transfer_files = YES

transfer_output = true
stream_output = true

when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT_OR_EVICT

Since my jobs take some hours or even days to complete it would be nice to update the output file stored in condor directory. At this moment my output file gets updated with standard output only when job is completed.

Is there any way, let's say every X minutes or seconds to update the output file? That way I could check job execution without login to grid SGE cluster.

It sounds like streaming output should do what you want.  Take a look at the relevant section in the condor_submit man page:
