The arccat command displays the stdout or stderr of running jobs. It
can also display the grid manager’s error log of a job. The job can be
referred to either by the jobid that was returned by arcsub(1) at
submission time or by its jobname if the job description that was
submitted contained a jobname attribute.
More than one jobid and/or jobname can be given. If several jobs were
submitted with the same jobname the stdout, stderr or grid manager
error log of all those jobs are shown. If the --joblist option is used
the list of jobs is read from a file with the specified filename. By
specifying the --all option, the stdout, stderr or grid manager error
log of all active jobs will be shown.
The --cluster option can be used to select or reject jobs at specific
clusters. See arcsub(1) for a discussion of the format of arguments to
this option. The --status option can be used to select jobs in a
specific state. These options can be repeated several times.
Only jobs where the stdout or stderr argument was given in the job
description can display the contents of those files.
Some options can be given default values by specifying them in
the ARC client configuration file. By using the --conffile
option a different configuration file can be used than the

interface commands. By using the --joblist option a different
file can be used than the default.
