condor_cod issues commands that manage and use COD claims on machines, given proper authorization.

Instead of specifying an argument of request , release , activate , deactivate , suspend , renew , or resume , the user may invoke the condor_cod tool by appending an underscore followed by one of these arguments. As an example, the following two commands are equivalent:

 condor_cod release -id "<>#1073352104#4"

 condor_cod_release -id "<>#1073352104#4"

To make these extended-name commands work, hard link the extended name to the condor_cod executable. For example on a Unix machine:

ln condor_cod_request condor_cod

The request argument gives a claim ID, and the other commands ( release , activate , deactivate , suspend , and resume ) use the claim ID. The claim ID is given as the last line of output for a request , and the output appears of the form:

ID of new claim is: "<a.b.c.d:portnumber>#x#y"

An actual example of this line of output is

ID of new claim is: "<>#1073352104#4"

The HTCondor manual has a complete description of COD.
