Retrieve a daemon’s log file that is located on another computer
condor_fetchlog [-help | -version ]
condor_fetchlog [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]] [-master | -startd | -schedd | -collector | -negotiator | -kbdd ] machine-name subsystem[.extension]
condor_fetchlog contacts HTCondor running on the machine specified by machine-name, and asks it to return a log file from that machine. Which log file is determined from the subsystem[.extension] argument. The log file is printed to standard output. This command eliminates the need to remotely log in to a machine in order to retrieve a daemon’s log file.
For security purposes of authentication and authorization, this command
ADMINISTRATOR level of access.
The subsystem[.extension] argument is utilized to construct the log file’s name. Without an optional .extension, the value of the configuration variable named subsystem _LOG defines the log file’s name. When specified, the .extension is appended to this value.
The subsystem argument is any value
$(SUBSYSTEM) that has a
defined configuration variable of
$(SUBSYSTEM)_LOG, or any of
A value for the optional .extension to the subsystem argument is typically one of the three strings:
Within these strings, <X> is substituted with the slot number.
A subsystem argument of
STARTD_HISTORY fetches all
condor_startd history by concatenating all instances of log files
resulting from rotation.
- Display usage information
- Display version information
- -pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]
- Specify a pool by giving the central manager’s host name and an optional port number
- Send the command to the condor_master daemon (default)
- Send the command to the condor_startd daemon
- Send the command to the condor_schedd daemon
- Send the command to the condor_collector daemon
- Send the command to the condor_kbdd daemon
To get the condor_negotiator daemon’s log from a host named
head.example.com from within the current pool:
condor_fetchlog head.example.com NEGOTIATOR
To get the condor_startd daemon’s log from a host named
execute.example.com from within the current pool:
condor_fetchlog execute.example.com STARTD
This command requested the condor_startd daemon’s log from the condor_master. If the condor_master has crashed or is unresponsive, ask another daemon running on that computer to return the log. For example, ask the condor_startd daemon to return the condor_master ‘s log:
condor_fetchlog -startd execute.example.com MASTER
condor_fetchlog will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
