ARC BLAH logger is an authplugin to store FINISHED jobs information in log files used by BLAH parser. Generated logs can be used by APEL/DGAS client tools to send accounting information.
arc-blahp-logger -I <jobID> -U <user> -P <proxy file> -L <job status file> [-c <ceid prefix>] [-p <log prefix> ] [-d <log level>] [-i]
- -I jobID
A-REX job identifier
- -U user
local account that own the job files and processes
- -P user proxy
path to user proxy certificate file to get VOMS membership info
- -L job status file
A-REX jobstatus .local file containint more info about job (like LRMS id)
- -c ceid prefix
prefix to generate CE ID in accordance to GLUE1.3 publishing
- -p log prefix
logs location and filename prefix. Default is /var/log/arc/accounting/blahp.log
- -d loglevel
logging level from 0(ERROR) to 5(DEBUG)
Ignore failed jobs. Default is to publish them.
Enabling Plugin in a-Rex Configuration
You need to add BLAH logger plugin as a handler for FINISHED state, e.g.:
authplugin="FINISHED timeout=10,onfailure=pass /usr/libexec/arc/arc-blahp-logger -I %I -U %u -L %C/job.%I.local -P %C/job.%I.proxy"
There are no particular plugin configuration except passing correct options.
By default BLAH log is written to /var/log/arc/accounting/blahp.log-YYYYMMDD. The log prefix (without -YYYYMMDD) can be redefined with optional -p option.
CE ID is generated automatically and has a format host.fqdn:2811/nordugrid-torque-queue in accordance to GLUE1.3 publishing. Queue is added in runtime anyway, but prefix can be redefined with -c option. This option should be added in case of LRMS.
To debug logger execution you can add -d 5 option and see all ARC logger output from all subsystems used.
