Re: [HTCondor-users] Use of debug statement in machine configuration file

Hello Gerard:

The classad debug() function prints debugging information to the log when the classad is evaluated. So, if you want to debug a slot's START _expression_, you can append to the start _expression_ with

START = debug($(START))

in the startd's config file.

To debug a job's requirements, you could write in the submit file

requirements = debug(whatever the requirements were..)

I am trying to understand how to use theÂAnyTypeÂdebug(AnyTypeÂ_expression_)feature documented atÂhttps://htcondor.readthedocs.io/en/latest/misc-concepts/classad-mechanism.html.

I have added the following to a file in /etc/condor/config.d:

DString = debug(Requirements)
DString2 = debug("unimarker")

andÂcondor_config_val -schedd DStringÂ(and DString2) shows the expected results. Iâve submitted jobs and grepped the files in /var/log/condor for âunimarkerâ but am not getting any results.
