Re: [HTCondor-users] Job Realtime output file

Bosco has an advanced submit option that automatically distributes your jobs between multiple clusters. One of its benefits is that you can stream the job's stdout and stderr back to your submit machine while the job executes.

On the Bosco installation page, check out section 5.2.2 Glidein Job submission example:

I've my cluster added to Bosco cluster resource list.
I'm a bit confused, so i won't be able to use stream output with Bosco? The only way to submit jobs to SGE with bosco is through grid universe.

Best regards,

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:

The streaming of output files isn't supported for grid universe jobs.

Streaming of output should work with Bosco's multi-cluster mode. The potential drawback there is that your home machine needs to be contactable from the execution machines and needs to stay on the network for the duration of the job's run.
