Arc test suite
The arctest command tests basic ARC client and server setup.
select one or more computing elements: name can be an alias for a single CE, a group of CEs or a URL
select one or more registries: name can be an alias for a single registry, a group of registries or a URL
skip the service with the given URL during service discovery
only use this interface for submitting (e.g. org.nordugrid.gridftpjob, org.ogf.glue.emies.activitycreation, org.ogf.bes)
the computing element specified by URL at the command line should be queried using this information interface (possible options: org.nordugrid.ldapng, org.nordugrid.ldapglue2, org.nordugrid.wsrfglue2, org.ogf.glue.emies.resourceinfo)
submits testjob given by the jobid.

the IDs of the submitted jobs will be appended to this file
submit jobs as dry run (no submission to batch system)
submit directly - no resource discovery or matchmaking
do not submit - dump job description in the language accepted by the target

print usage information
The arctest command is used for basic testing of ARC client and server installation through submitting various test jobs. It can also print basic information about user's certificate. The command is complementary to arcinfo and arcproxy -I
The test jobs available in this version of arctest are:
Test job 1: This test-job calculates prime-numbers for a number of minutes given by -r (default 5) and outputs the list to stderr. The source-code for the prime-number program, the Makefile and the executable are downloaded to the cluster from HTTP and FTP servers and the program is compiled before running. In this way, the test job constitutes a fairly comprehensive test of the basic setup of a grid cluster.
Test job 2: attempts to list all environment variables at the remote site
Test job 3: copies a remote file from an HTTP server into a local file
arctest -J 1 -c <clustername>
will submit test job number 1 to the specified cluster belonging to the flavor of it.
will print basic information about the user's certificate.
