Re: [Condor-users] Hi percentage of idle jobs

A user is submitting twelve jobs to a twelve cpu cluster but notices that half of the jobs are in an idle status even though there are plenty of cpu's to accomodate them. What could be the cause for this? Thanks.

Are these short running jobs? (On the order of seconds.) Condor isn't optimized for job startup, so if the jobs start up slowly and run quickly, you might not take full advantage of the cluster.

Are you having any failures? Look in the job log files (as specified in the submit file.)

Are the jobs consistently failing to run on certain machines? Perhaps there is a configuration problem with some of the machines, but not all of them.
