AIT Alpha Farm: Examining intermediate output

AFS does not update the server for files which have not been closed. This means some files your job produces appear empty when viewed with an interactive machine.

To remedy this, modify your DQS script to include the 2 lines:

attach -n farm ; set path=($path /home/farm/bin/axp)
start_copying file1 file2 ...

where file1 file2 ... are the files you wish to look at during execution. At the end of the job, place the line:


The start_copying script creates a Farm_Copies subdirectory in the current working directory, and every 5 minutes copies the files specified to that subdirectory. The copies in the Farm_Copies subdirectory are then visible on any Project Vincent workstation.
