Re: [HTCondor-users] Python bindings: how to querying configuration values

Hi Brian,

thanks for the warning.
I can confirm, that querying the pools masters' parameters is quite slow
and probably not the way to go ;)

I will see to go for the ClassAds instead.

Cheers and thanks,

If you want to know something like the kernel version of all your worker nodes, Iâd suggest you add it to the respective daemonâs ClassAd.  The CHTC pool uses the ClassAd attributes to advertise the git hash of the current config files, for example.
