condor_submit_workers(1)

NAME

condor_submit_workers - submit work_queue_worker to the Condor grid.

SYNOPSIS

condor_submit_workers [options] <servername> <port> <num-workers>
or
condor_submit_workers [options] --master-name <name> <num-workers>

DESCRIPTION

condor_submit_workers schedules the execution of work_queue_worker(1) on a grid managed by Condor through its job submission interface, condor_submit. The number of work_queue_worker scheduled and run is given by the num-workers argument. The servername and port arguments specify the hostname and port number of the master for the work_queue_worker to connect. Alternatively, this information can be obtained from the catalog server by specifying the name of the work queue using the --master-name parameter.
