When a job is submitted to the grid for execution, job information is
stored in file
.Brokerinfo provided that the CE is
selected by the Resource Broker. If you use the
--resource option of
dg-job-submit, the job is submitted to the selected CE bypassing the
match making process and file
.Brokerinfo is not created.
If you need information registered in the
.Brokerinfo file and
at the same time you also need a well defined CE, you must use the
RunTimeEnvironment parameter in the JDL file.
You need information from the
.Brokerinfo file when
your job must save the output files to the close SE of the CE where the
job was submitted,
in such case insert in your executing scripts, the following lines:
CLOSE_SE=`edg-brokerinfo getCloseSEs | cut -d " " -f 1` MOUNT_POINT=`edg-brokerinfo getSEMountPoint $CLOSE_SE`then in the
edg-replica-manager-copyAndRegisterFilecommand specify the destination parameter as:
-d $CLOSE_SE/$MOUNT_POINT/mydir/myfileCheck Section 9 for a detailed example.
