Inspect the file(s) that HTCondor is holding on to as a result of a job being evicted when when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT_OR_EVICT, or checkpointing when CheckpointExitCode is set.


condor_evicted_files [COMMAND] <clusterID>.<procID>[ <clusterID.<procID>]*


Print the directory or directories HTCondor is using to store files for the specified job or jobs. COMMAND may be one of dir, list, or get:

  • dir: Print the directory (for each job) in which the file(s) are stored.

  • list: List the contents of the directory (for each job).

  • get: Copy the contents of the directory to a subdirectory named after each job’s ID.

General Remarks

The tool presently has a number of limitations:

  • It must be run the same machine as the job’s schedd.

  • The schedd must NOT have ALTERNATE_JOB_SPOOL set

  • You can’t name the destination directory for the get command.

  • The tool can’t distinguish between an invalid job ID and a job for which HTCondor never held any files.

Exit Status

Returns 0 on success.
