       condor_wait Wait	for jobs to finish

       condor_wait [ -help -version ]

       condor_wait  [  -debug ]	[ -status ] [ -echo ] [	-wait seconds ]	[ -num
       number-of-jobs ]	log-file [ job ID ]

       condor_wait watches a job event 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 seconds

	  Wait no more than the	integer	number of seconds . The	default	is un-
	  limited time.

       -num number-of-jobs

	  Wait for the integer number-of-jobs jobs to end. The default is  all
	  jobs in the log file.

       log file

	  The name of the log file to watch for	information about the job.

       job ID

	  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 be watched.

General	Remarks
       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
       HTCondor	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.

       condor_wait logfile

       This command waits for all jobs that exist in  logfile to complete.

       condor_wait logfile 40

       This command waits for all jobs that exist in  logfile with a job Clas-
       sAd attribute  ClusterId	of 40 to complete.

       condor_wait -num	2 logfile

       This command waits for any two jobs that	exist in  logfile to complete.

       condor_wait logfile 40.1

       This command waits for job 40.1 that exists in  logfile to 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).

Exit Status
       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.
