[Condor-users] How many submit nodes in your pool ?

Hi everyone -

	We are currently trying to setup a large Condor pool/flock
(haven't decided which yet), and there is some debate here about submit
nodes, so I thought it might be useful to find out what other people are
doing in this regard.  What I would like to know from people with large
(hundreds or more machines) pools is the following: 

- How large is your pool?

- Do you restrict the number of submit nodes, i.e. do you have only a
  small (maybe only one) number of submit nodes, or can any machine
  (within reason) submit jobs to the pool/flock?

- If you do restrict the number of submit nodes is this a problem for, or
  a source of dissatisfaction amongst, your users or do they not
  particularly mind?

(It might make sense to reply directly to me rather than to the
 condor-users mailing list.)
