jobid or job name of jobs to be resubmitted
The arcresub command is used for resubmitting jobs on grid enabled
computing resources to the same (not default, see below) or new
resources. 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 all those jobs will be resubmitted.
Upon resubmission of a job the corresponding job description will be
fetched from the local joblist file along with the checksum of local
input files. If the checksums does not match the current ones the job
no longer remains the same job an will therefore not be resubmitted.
In case the job description is not found in the joblist, it will be
retrieved from the cluster holding the job. This description however
might differ from the one originally used to submit the job, since both
the submission client and the cluster can have made modifications to
the job description.
Upon resubmision the job will receive a new jobid. Hence the old jobid
will also be stored in the local joblist file enabling future back
tracing of the resubmitted job.
The name of the local joblist file can used specified by the --joblist
option. By specifying the --all option, all active jobs appearing the
in joblist file will be resubmitted.
The --cluster option can be used to select or reject jobs at specific
clusters to be resubmitted. See arcsub(1) for a discussion of the
format of arguments to this option. The --qluster option can be used
to force the jobs to be resubmitted to a particular cluster, or to
reject resubmission to a particular cluster. Againg 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. Which servers to query can be specified
by giving the --index option to the command. See arcsub(1) for a
discussion of the format of arguments to this option.
The default behaviour of arcresub is to disregard the cluster which
job(s) resides on. If the desired behaviour is to resubmit to the same
cluster it can be obtained by specifying the --same option which will
force jobs to be resubmitted to the same cluster as where they initial
run. If the old job was successfully killed the job will be removed
from the remote cluster unless the --keep option was specified.
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

The location where ARC is installed can be specified by this
variable. If not specified the install location will be
determined from the path to the command being executed, and if
this fails a WARNING will be given stating the location which
will be used.
The location of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable.
Multiple locations can be specified by separating them by : (;
in Windows). The default location is $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in
