condor_history [-name name] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]] [-backwards ] [-forwards ] [-constraint expr] [-file filename] [-local] [-startd] [-userlog filename] [-format formatString AttributeName] [-autoformat[:jlhVr,tng] ** *attr1 [attr2 …]*] [-l | -long | -xml | -json** ] [-match | -limit ** *number*] [**cluster | cluster.process | owner ]
condor_history displays a summary of all HTCondor jobs listed in the
specified history files. If no history files are specified with the
-file option, the local history file as specified in HTCondor’s
configuration file (
$(SPOOL)/history by default) is read. The
default listing summarizes in reverse chronological order each job on a
single line, and contains the following items:
- The cluster/process id of the job.
- The owner of the job.
- The month, day, hour, and minute the job was submitted to the queue.
- Remote wall clock time accumulated by the job to date in days, hours, minutes, and seconds, given as the job ClassAd attribute
- Completion status of the job (C = completed and X = removed).
- The time the job was completed.
- The name of the executable.
If a job ID (in the form of cluster_id or cluster_id.proc_id) or an owner is provided, output will be restricted to jobs with the specified IDs and/or submitted by the specified owner. The -constraint option can be used to display jobs that satisfy a specified boolean expression.
The history file is kept in chronological order, implying that new entries are appended at the end of the file. As of Condor version 6.7.19, the format of the history file is altered to enable faster reading of the history file backwards (most recent job first). History files written with earlier versions of Condor, as well as those that have entries of both the older and newer format need to be converted to the new format. See the condor_convert_history manual page for details on converting history files to the new format.
- Display usage information and exit.
- -name name
- Query the named condor_schedd daemon. if used with -startd, query the named condor_startd daemon
- -pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]
- Use the centralmanagerhostname as the central manager to locate condor_schedd daemons. The default is the
COLLECTOR_HOST, as specified in the configuration.
- List jobs in reverse chronological order. The job most recently added to the history file is first. This is the default ordering.
- List jobs in chronological order. The job most recently added to the history file is last. At least 4 characters must be given to distinguish this option from the -file and -format options.
- -constraint expr
- Display jobs that satisfy the expression.
- -attributes attrs
- Display only the given attributes when the -long o ption is used.
- -since jobid or expr
- Stop scanning when the given jobid is found or when the expression becomes true.
- Read from local history files even if there is a SCHEDD_HOST configured.
- Read from Startd history files rather than Schedd history files.
- -file filename
- Use the specified file instead of the default history file.
- -userlog filename
- Display jobs, with job information coming from a job event log, instead of from the default history file. A job event log does not contain all of the job information, so some fields in the normal output of condor_history will be blank.
- -format formatString AttributeName
- Display jobs with a custom format. See the condor_q man page -format option for details.
- -autoformat[:jlhVr,tng] attr1 [attr2 …] or -af[:jlhVr,tng] attr1 [attr2 …]
(output option) Display attribute(s) or expression(s) formatted in a default way according to attribute types. This option takes an arbitrary number of attribute names as arguments, and prints out their values, with a space between each value and a newline character after the last value. It is like the -format option without format strings.
It is assumed that no attribute names begin with a dash character, so that the next word that begins with dash is the start of the next option. The autoformat option may be followed by a colon character and formatting qualifiers to deviate the output formatting from the default:
j print the job ID as the first field,
l label each field,
h print column headings before the first line of output,
V use %V rather than %v for formatting (string values are quoted),
r print “raw”, or unevaluated values,
, add a comma character after each field,
t add a tab character before each field instead of the default space character,
n add a newline character after each field,
g add a newline character between ClassAds, and suppress spaces before each field.
Use -af:h to get tabular values with headings.
Use -af:lrng to get -long equivalent format.
The newline and comma characters may not be used together. The l and h characters may not be used together.
- -l or -long
- Display job ClassAds in long format.
- -limit Number
- Limit the number of jobs displayed to Number. Same option as -match.
- -match Number
- Limit the number of jobs displayed to Number. Same option as -limit.
- Display job ClassAds in XML format. The XML format is fully defined in the reference manual, obtained from the ClassAds web page, with a link at http://htcondor.org/classad/classad.html.
- Display job ClassAds in JSON format.
condor_history will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
