Re: [HTCondor-users] Hooks in HTCondor-CE?


So your current setup is running your scripts on the CE? If that's the case, I suggest taking a look at the cleanup hook: https://htcondor.readthedocs.io/en/stable/misc-concepts/hooks.html#hooks-invoked-for-job-routing

Hi Brian,

our case would be how to keep custom made functionalities if we
migrate our site from ARC-CE to HTCondor-CE.
We have a bunch of scripts that run at job completion. Like copying
job files to storage, and stuff like that.
So I am looking for the easiest way to maintain those functionalities,
to be performed at job completion.

I thought about the hooks, since I did some work with them in the past.
Just wondering if the hooks is the best/easiest way, or there are better ways.

Hi Jose,

I'm curious what your use case is here -- is this related to ATLAS'
interest in pre-staging container images specified by incoming grid
jobs? What actions are you looking to perform at which specific points
in the job's lifetime? Is this for a CE in front of HTCondor or another
batch system?

As Michael pointed out, HTCondor has a multitude of hooks but some of
them are specific to startds and so those wouldn't be applicable to

And, would these hooks have access to the jobâs output files?

Let me clarify the question. Is the path to job files (stdout, stderr,
output files) one the classads at the CE?
