Globus Error: 131


Syntax:

Globus error 131: the user proxy expired (job is still running)

Known causes:

The job did not complete before the user's proxy (certificate authentication) with the grid expired. Doing condor_q you will show you the held job.

Recommendations:

  • Renew your grid proxy and release the held jobs using Condor:

Example:

$ grid-proxy-init
Enter GRID pass phrase for this identity:
Creating proxy ........................................ Done
Your proxy is valid until: <date>
$ condor_release <job id or -all>
All jobs released.
  • Prevention: The default grid proxy expires after 12 hours. If a job is expected to run for longer than 12 hours, it is possible to specify the duration of a proxy using:
$ grid-proxy-init -valid <hh:mm>
