Re: [HTCondor-users] HTCondor: job outputs not cleaned up?

Hi Thomas,

You might benefit from the âMOUNT_UNDER_SCRATCHâ option.  This uses a bind mount to cause directories besides $_CONDOR_SCRATCH_DIR to specific to the job itself.

For example, if you set:

MOUNT_UNDER_SCRATCH=/tmp, /var/tmp, /var/jobs

then anything written to those directories by job A will not be visible to job B (and will be cleaned automatically).
