       condor_checkpoint  send	a checkpoint command to	jobs running on	speci-
       fied hosts

       condor_checkpoint [ -help -version ]

       condor_checkpoint [ -debug ] [  -pool  centralmanagerhostname[:portnum-
       ber]  ]	[  -name hostname hostname -addr _a.b.c.d:port_	_a.b.c.d:port_
       -constraint expression -all ]

       condor_checkpoint sends a checkpoint  command  to  a  set  of  machines
       within  a  single  pool.	 This  causes the startd daemon	on each	of the
       specified machines to take a checkpoint of any running job that is exe-
       cuting  under  the standard universe. The job is	temporarily stopped, a
       checkpoint is taken, and	then the job continues.	If no machine is spec-
       ified,  then  the  command  is sent to the machine that issued the con-
       dor_checkpoint command.

       The command sent	is a periodic checkpoint. The job will take  a	check-
       point,  but  then  the  job will	immediately continue running after the
       checkpoint is completed.	 condor_vacate , on the	other hand,  will  re-
       sult in the job exiting (vacating) after	it produces a checkpoint.

       If  the	job being checkpointed is running under	the standard universe,
       the job produces	a checkpoint and then continues	running	 on  the  same
       machine.	 If  the job is	running	under another universe,	or if there is
       currently no HTCondor job running on that host, then  condor_checkpoint
       has no effect.

       There  is generally no need for the user	or administrator to explicitly
       run condor_checkpoint . Taking checkpoints of running HTCondor jobs  is
       handled	automatically  following the policies stated in	the configura-
       tion files.

       -pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]

       -name hostname

	  Send the command to a	machine	identified by hostname

       -addr _a.b.c.d:port_

	  Send the command to a	machine's master located at _a.b.c.d:port_


	  Send the command to a	machine	located	at _a.b.c.d:port_

       -constraint expression

	  Apply	this command only to machines matching the given  ClassAd  ex-


	  Send the command to all machines in the pool

Exit Status
       condor_checkpoint  will	exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon suc-
       cess, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.

       To send a condor_checkpoint command to two named	machines:

       % condor_checkpoint  robin cardinal

       To send the condor_checkpoint command to	a machine within a pool	of ma-
       chines 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 ma-
       chines  within  the  pool must be specified as the targets for the com-
       mand. This command sends	the command to	a  the	single	machine	 named
       cae17  within  the pool of machines that	has	as its
       central manager:

       % condor_checkpoint -pool -name cae17
