Re: [HTCondor-users] question about accounting groups

Hi Greg, all

The accounting information is stored in the "AccountantNew.log" file, which is maintained by the condor_negotiator. This file is written to in a transaction-log style, where all changes to the state are appended to the file, and periodically the file is rewritten with the current state.


Thanks Greg. It seems like HTCondor has a different idea about what âaccountingâ is than I do, and thatâs whatâs throwing me off track. What I see in the AccountantNew.log file is lots of stuff about the current state of slots, and lots of stuff about the current and historical state of aggregate usage for each user. Is this a correct assessment?

The thing I was looking for when I say âaccountingâ is something like this:

2020-10-22 16:47:22 some-job-unique-id user=templon group=pdp cput=07:22:01 wall=07:24:44 ncores=2 physmem=2700 vmem=4321 exstat=0
[ â ]

One line for each job that has run on the system. So if I want to know how much âtemplonâ has run over the past month, I can select all the records for the past month and add the wall*ncores. What do HTCondor folk call this (not accounting I guess) and where is it stored and how is it accessed?
