       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 ...]


       -a, --all
              all jobs

       -j, --joblist=filename
              file containing a list of jobs

       -c, --cluster=[-]name
              explicitly select or reject a specific cluster

       -s, --status=statusstr
              only select jobs whose status is statusstr

       -i, --index=[-]name
              explicitly select or reject an index server

       -l, --long
              long format (more information)

       -t, --timeout=seconds
              timeout in seconds (default 20)

       -z, --conffile=filename
              configuration file (default ~/.arc/client.conf)

       -d, --debug=debuglevel

       -v, --version
              print version information

       -?, --help
              print help


       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
