condor_master - The master Condor Daemon
This daemon is responsible for keeping all the rest of the Condor
daemons running on each machine in your pool. It spawns the other
daemons, and periodically checks to see if there are new binaries
installed for any of them. If there are, the condor_master will restart
the affected daemons. In addition, if any daemon crashes, the
condor_master will send e-mail to the Condor Administrator of your pool
and restart the daemon. The condor_master also supports various
administrative commands that let you start, stop or reconfigure daemons
remotely. The condor_master will run on every machine in your Condor
pool, regardless of what functions each machine are performing.
Section in the Administrator’s Manual has more information about the
condor_master and other Condor daemons. See Section for documentation
on command line arguments for condor_master .
The DAEMON_LISTconfiguration macro is used by the condor_master to
provide a per-machine list of daemons that should be started and kept
running. For daemons that are specified in the
DC_DAEMON_LISTconfiguration macro, the condor_master daemon will spawn
them automatically appending a -f argument. For those listed in
DAEMON_LIST, but not in DC_DAEMON_LIST, there will be no -f argument.
Provides an alternate name for the condor_master to override that
given by the MASTER_NAMEconfiguration variable.
