Description Martin Kudlej 2012-08-03 09:08:09 EDT
Description of problem:
We have discovered the following undocumented fix in the 2.2 builds and t needs to be explicitly tested:

The  new PRE_SKIP key word in DAGMan changes the behavior of DAG node  execution such that the node's job and POST script may be skipped based  on the exit value of the PRE script. See section 2.10.2 for details.  (Ticket #2122).

Comment 6 Luigi Toscano 2013-01-28 13:32:50 EST
The PRE_SKIP value is correctly taken into account, if specified. It affects the termination of the associated job according the documentation.

Verified on RHEL5.9/6.4 beta, i386/x86_64.
