condor_dagman_metrics_repor terReport - the statistics of a DAGMan run to a central HTTP server


condor_dagman_metrics_repor ter[-s] [-u URL] [-t maxtime] -f /path/to/metrics/file


condor_dagman_metrics_reporteranonymously reports metrics from a DAGMan workflow to a central server. The reporting of workflow metrics is only enabled for DAGMan workflows run under Pegasus; metrics reporting has been requested by Pegasus' funding sources: see the requirements to collect this data.

The data sent to the server is in JSON format. Here is an example of what is sent:

{ "client":"condor_dagman", "version":"8.1.0", "planner":"/lfs1/devel/Pegasus/pegasus/bin/pegasus-plan", "planner_version":"4.3.0cvs", "type":"metrics", "wf_uuid":"htcondor-test-job_dagman_metrics-A-subdag", "root_wf_uuid":"htcondor-test-job_dagman_metrics-A", "start_time":1375313459.603, "end_time":1375313491.498, "duration":31.895, "exitcode":1, "dagman_id":"26", "parent_dagman_id":"11", "rescue_dag_number":0, "jobs":4, "jobs_failed":1, "jobs_succeeded":3, "dag_jobs":0, "dag_jobs_failed":0, "dag_jobs_succeeded":0, "total_jobs":4, "total_jobs_run":4, "total_job_time":0.000, "dag_status":2

Metrics are sent only if the condor_dagmanprocess has PEGASUS_METRICS set to True in its environment, and the CONDOR_DEVELOPERS configuration variable does nothave the value NONE .

Ordinarily, this program will be run by condor_dagman, and users do not need to interact with it. This program uses the following environment variables:


The URL of the default server to which to send the data. It defaults to . It can be overridden at the command line with the -uoption.


A comma separated list of URLs of servers that will receive the data, in addition to the default server.

The -fargument specifies the metrics file to be sent to the HTTP server.


Sleep for a random number of seconds between 1 and 10, before attempting to send data. This option is used to space out the reporting from any sub-DAGs when a DAG is removed.

-u URL

Overrides setting of the environment variable PEGASUS_USER_METRICS_DEFAULT_SERVER . This option is unused by condor_dagman; it is for testing by developers.

-t maxtime

A maximum time in seconds that defaults to 100 seconds, setting a limit on the amount of time this program will wait for communication from the server. A setting of zero will result in a single attempt per server. condor_dagmanretrieves this value from the DAGMAN_PEGASUS_REPORT_TIMEOUT configuration variable.

-f metrics_file

The name of the file containing the metrics values to be reported.

Exit Status

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