       condor_preen remove extraneous files from HTCondor directories

       condor_preen [ -mail ] [	-remove	] [ -verbose ] [ -debug	]

       condor_preen  examines  the  directories	belonging to HTCondor, and re-
       moves extraneous	files and directories which may	be left	over from  HT-
       Condor processes	which terminated abnormally either due to internal er-
       rors or a system	crash. The directories checked are the	LOG ,  EXECUTE
       ,  and	SPOOL  directories  as	defined	 in the	HTCondor configuration
       files.  condor_preen is intended	to be run as user  root	or user	  con-
       dor  periodically  as  a	backup method to ensure	reasonable file	system
       cleanliness in the face of errors. This is done	automatically  by  de-
       fault by	the condor_master daemon. It may also be explicitly invoked on
       an as needed basis.

       When condor_preen cleans	the  SPOOL directory, it always	leaves	behind
       the  files  specified in	the configuration variables  VALID_SPOOL_FILES
       and  SYSTEM_VALID_SPOOL_FILES , as given	by the configuration. For  the
       LOG  directory,	the  only  files  removed or reported are those	listed
       within the configuration	variable  INVALID_LOG_FILES list.  The	reason
       for  this  difference is	that, in general, the files in the  LOG	direc-
       tory ought to be	left alone, with few exceptions. An example of	excep-
       tions  are core files. As there are new log files introduced regularly,
       it is less effort to specify those that ought to	be removed than	 those
       that are	not to be removed.


	  Send	mail  to  the  user  defined in	the  PREEN_ADMIN configuration
	  variable, instead of writing to the standard output.


	  Remove the offending files and directories rather than reporting  on


	  List all files found in the Condor directories, even those which are
	  not considered extraneous.


	  Print	extra debugging	information as the command executes.

Exit Status
       condor_preen will exit with a status value of 0	(zero)	upon  success,
       and it will exit	with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
