RE: [Condor-users] Condor job submission delayed

Hmm. I'm seeing this problem whether I submit from Windows XP or from
Linux machine. And my Linux master machine has more than enough power
and RAM to handle condor (2GB of RAM and dual 866 MHz PIIIs). Ditto for
the Linux and Windows submitters.

It is all truly mysterious.

Hi Ian,

  Today i switched my setup so that the windows clients submit jobs 
rathr than the linux central pool machine submitting the job & i do not 
seem to be getting any more long delays  between the time my clients 
finish a job and the time that a new job is assigned to them. Very 
odd...I'm going to do more testing this week as i have a lot of data to 
crunch so i will note the behaviour more. My linux central manager is 
kind of low in physical ram so the only explanation i can think of is 
that somehow having 200 jobs submitted by the central manager (but not 
run on on the central manager)  was bogging it down somehow....i recall 
reading that each  condor_submit requires some RAM which is allocated to

the processes monitoring the jobs on the queue...so perhaps my central 
manager was too low on ram and was not assigning tasks until it had more

resources available.
