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 for the integer number-of-jobs jobs to end. The default is all
jobs in the log file.
The name of the log file to watch for information about the job.
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
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.
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).
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.
