The ARC user interface keeps a local list of active jobs in the users
home directory (see arcsub(1)). If this file is lost, or the user
wants to recreate the file on a different computer,the arcsync
command can be used to recreate the file from the information available
the specified cluster or index server.
Since the information about a job retrieved from a cluster can be
slightly out of date if the user very recently submitted or removed a
job a warning is issued when this command is run. The -force
option disables this warning.
options can be used to select or reject clusters that should be
considered in the synchronization. This options can be repeated several
for a discussion of the format of arguments to this option.
If the joblist is not empty when invoking synchronization the old jobs
will be merged with the new jobs, unless the
option is given, in which case the joblist will first be truncated and
then the new jobs will be added.
Some options can be given default values by specifying them in the
ARC client configuration file. By using the
option a different configuration file can be used than the default.
This is a local list of the user's active jobs. When a job is
successfully submitted it is added to this list and when it is removed
from the remote cluster it is removed from this list. This list is
used as the list of all active jobs when the user specifies the
option to the various NorduGrid ARC user interface commands. By using the
option a different file can be used than the default.
The location of the user's grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless
the proxy is in a non-standard location.
The location where ARC is installed can be specified by this variable. If not
specified the install location will be determined from the path to the
command being executed, and if this fails a WARNING will be given stating the
location which will be used.
The location of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable. Multiple
locations can be specified by separating them by : (; in Windows). The
default location is $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in Windows).
