[Mauiusers] Return code of job

Hello! Thanks for your quick reply. However, that does not answer my
question. Could you perhaps point me to the lines of code in Maui where
it detects that a job has failed and sends a message back to the
resource manager?

Thanks, K

It depends on which resource manager you are using.

If you are using TORQUE, enable the "keep_completed" feature and you can
read the "exit_status" attribute from a job stat.
