Re: [HTCondor-users] Why does HTCondor replace my executable with condor_exec.exe on Linux?

This is documented behavior

See https://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/manual/v8.4/2_15Potential_Problems.html

When I condor_submit a job that tells it to run /Volume/my/network/shared/drive/foo.a, it seems to run correctly. However when I print argv[0], it shows condor_exec.exe instead of foo.a. This is version 8.4.7 on Ubuntu 14.01.Â

Why does HTCondor do this? Is this a bug?

Reading the source code, it looks likeÂOsProc::StartJob() is deliberately replacing argv[0] with condor_exec.exe. Can someone explain this behaviour?

Thanks in advance.
