Re: [HTCondor-users] Question about the location (database or user log) of the job queue information obtained by condor_q


AFAIK, condor_q fetch the information JOB_QUEUE_LOG file. It's recommended to keep this file on high performance storage (SSD) or even RAM (/dev/shm).

# condor_config_val JOB_QUEUE_LOG

I don't think it's recommended to alter this file manually. While replying to your email, on my test box after submitting a few test jobs I removed the condor_job_queue.log file, strangely condor_q was still reflecting the job status hence not sure apart from this file whether something else is also used to keep queue information. For sure after schedd restart this file is used to rebuild condor_q job information.Â

Thanks & Regards,

Hi all,

 We have noticed that condor_q will return job queue information. However, we are wondering the storage location of the queried information, is it stored in the database (PostgreSQL or Quill) or in the user log? If so, where is the location of the database file or log files?
 The specific requirement is that we want to find the storage location of the information and manually delete the log records. What can I do to achieve this requirement?

Thank you very much for your help!
