2Wrapper script to get the Redis broker URL from condor and launch another tool. 


4In a job running under HTCondor, the environment variable `_CONDOR_MACHINE_AD` 

5is the path of a text file that contains the machine's ClassAd attributes. The 

6`ClientMachine` attribute records the hostname of the machine that has claimed 

7the machine on which the job is running, i.e., the submit machine. We assume 

8that the Redis server is running on the submit machine.
