Manage HTCondor jobs and resources


htcondor [-help]

htcondor job [ submit | status | resources ] [–resource resource-type] [–node_count count] [–runtime time-seconds] [–email email-address]


htcondor is a tool for managing HTCondor jobs and resources.

At present it only supports simple job submission and monitoring.

The –resource option allows you to run jobs on resources other than your local HTCondor pool. By specifying either EC2 or Slurm here, the tool provisions resources described by the –runtime and –node_count options and sends your HTCondor job to run on them. It assumes you have already completed the necessary setup tasks, such as creating an account for Slurm submissions or making your AWS access keys available for EC2 submissions.
