Condor jobs left in queue with X state at end of completion #26
Reported by Michael Wang
The condor provider currently leaves jobs in X state in the queue. The provider sets the leave_in_queue option to prevent condor from removing completed jobs before the provider has a chance to notice the state change. This has a side-effect of condor_rm'ed job's staying in the queue in an 'X' state. Usually this is not a problem as condor will do a cleanup later, however this can be confusing to users. From condor documentation (condor_rm man page) :
To avoid this situation, the provider should ideally remove the job, and do a final cleanup.
