Subject: [HTCondor-users] Any tricks for simple startd cron jobs?
So I'd like to run some simple probes using
startd_cron, for example a pgrep to make sure that the automounter is running.
I'm trying to do it using only the startd_cron executable and args with
inline commands, but I must be missing a nuance somewhere with respect
to how the arguments list is parsed out. I'd like to be able to avoid having
a separate shell script to generate the output which the startd is to incorporate,
so that everything can be self-contained in the config.
But this doesn't seem to do the trick.
And fancier stuff like "AutomountPid=$(/usr/bin/pgrep automount)"
- forget about it. Perhaps I need to invoke the shell explicitly with a
-c? But then argument grouping becomes an issue.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
