HTC grid submission test

First create a proxy and copy it into your home directory:

voms-proxy-init --voms beapps
cp -a -p /tmp/x509up_u`id -u` ./

Why is it needed to have your proxy in your homedir? Because it must be available to the schedd and that the /user has also been mounted on the schedd machine for this reason. (The picture that you have to keep in mind here is that you are using a remote schedd that will submit the job on your behalf to the CE.)

Now let's create the *.sub file (ce_test.sub):

# Required for remote HTCondor-CE submission                                                                    
universe = grid
use_x509userproxy = true
x509userproxy = /user/sgerard/x509up_u20533
grid_resource = condor

# Files
executable =
output = ce_test.out
error = ce_test.err
log = ce_test.log

# File transfer behavior
should_transfer_files = yes
when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT

# Resource requests
request_cpus   = 1
request_memory = 1024
request_disk   = 10240

# Optional resource requests
#+xcount = 4            # Request 4 cores
#+maxMemory = 4000      # Request 4GB of RAM
#+maxWallTime = 120     # Request 2 hrs of wall clock time
#+remote_queue = "osg"  # Request the OSG queue

# Run job once

Don't forget to create the shell script mentioned in the *.sub:

sleep 180

And then you submit exactly the same way as for a local submission:

condor_submit ce_test.sub

The official documentation explaining in details job submission is available here.
