condor_reschedule Update scheduling information to the central manager


condor_reschedule [ -help -version ]

condor_reschedule [ -debug ] [ -pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber] ] [ -name hostname hostname -addr <a.b.c.d:port> <a.b.c.d:port> -constraint expression -all ]


condor_reschedule updates the information about a set of machines' resources and jobs to the central manager. This command is used to force an update before viewing the current status of a machine. Viewing the status of a machine is done with the condor_status command. condor_reschedule also starts a new negotiation cycle between resource owners and resource providers on the central managers, so that jobs can be matched with machines right away. This can be useful in situations where the time between negotiation cycles is somewhat long, and an administrator wants to see if a job in the queue will get matched without waiting for the next negotiation cycle.

A new negotiation cycle cannot occur more frequently than every 20 seconds. Requests for new negotiation cycle within that 20 second window will be deferred until 20 seconds have passed since that last cycle.

To reschedule on a machine within a pool other than the local pool, use the -pool option. The argument is the name of the central manager for the pool. Note that one or more machines within the pool must be specified as the targets for the command. This command reschedules the single machine named cae17 within the pool of machines that has condor.cae.wisc.edu as its central manager:

% condor_reschedule -pool condor.cae.wisc.edu -name cae17
