       condor_wait - Wait for jobs to finish


       condor_wait [ -help -version ]

       condor_wait  [  -debug ] [ -wait seconds ] [ -num number-of-jobs ] log-
       file [ job ID ]


       condor_wait watches a user log  file  (created  with  the  log  command
       within  a  submit  description  file) and returns when one or more jobs
       from the log have completed or aborted.

       Because condor_wait expects to find at least one job submitted event in
       the  log  file,  at least one job must have been successfully submitted
       with condor_submit before condor_wait is executed.

       condor_wait will wait forever for jobs to finish, unless a shorter wait
       time is specified.

       -wait seconds

          Wait  no  more  than  the integer number of seconds . The default is
          unlimited time.

       -num number-of-jobs

          Wait for the integer number-of-jobs jobs to end. The default is  all
          jobs in the log file.

       log file

          The name of the log file to watch for information about the job.

       job ID

          A  specific  job  or set of jobs to watch. If the job ID is only the
          job ClassAd attribute ClusterId, then condor_wait waits for all jobs
          with the given ClusterId. If the job ID is a pair of the job ClassAd
          attributes, given by ClusterId.ProcId, then  condor_wait  waits  for
          the specific job with this job ID . If this option is not specified,
          all jobs that exist in the log file when condor_wait is invoked will
          be watched.

General Remarks

       condor_wait is an inexpensive way to test or wait for the completion of
       a job or a whole cluster, if you are trying to get a process outside of
       Condor to synchronize with a job or set of jobs.

       It  can  also be used to wait for the completion of a limited subset of
       jobs, via the -num option.


       condor_wait logfile

       This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfileto complete.

       condor_wait logfile 40

       This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfilewith a job ClassAd
       attribute ClusterIdof 40 to complete.

       condor_wait -num 2 logfile

       This command waits for any two jobs that exist in logfileto complete.

       condor_wait logfile 40.1

       This command waits for job 40.1 that exists in logfileto complete.

       condor_wait -wait 3600 logfile 40.1

       This  waits  for  job 40.1 to complete by watching logfile, but it will
       not wait more than one hour (3600 seconds).

Exit Status

       condor_wait exits with 0 if and only if the specified job or jobs  have
       completed  or  aborted.   condor_wait returns 1 if unrecoverable errors
       occur, such as a missing log file, if the job does not exist in the log
       file, or the user-specified waiting time has expired.
