       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.


       -n name

          Provides  an  alternate  name for the condor_master to override that
          given by the MASTER_NAMEconfiguration variable.
