arcstat - ARC Status
The arcstat command is used for obtaining the status of jobs that have
been submitted to grid enabled resources and the status of the clusters
in the grid.
arcstat [options] [job ...]

list of jobids and/or jobnames
The arcstat command gives the status of a job submitted an ARC enabled
resource. 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 status 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 status
of all active jobs will be shown. If the --long option is given more
detailed information is given.
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.
The arcstat command locates the available clusters by querying
information index servers. 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.
Also in this case the --long option can be used to obtain more detailed
Previously the arcstat command was also used to query information of
clusters and/or index servers. This functionality have been moved to
the new command arcinfo
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
This a local list of the user’s active jobs. When a job is
successfully submitted it is added to this list and when it is
removed from the remote cluster it is removed from this list.
This list is used as the list of all active jobs when the user
specifies the --all option to the various NorduGrid ARC user
interface commands. By using the --joblist option a different
file can be used than the default.
The location of the user’s grid proxy file. Shouldn’t be set
unless the proxy is in a non-standard location.
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
