Re: [Condor-users] low priority processes on windows

All my condor processes started by condor dagman run as low priority (on windows).
How can I configure them to start as "normal"?


I assume by "condor processes" you mean the DAGMan PRE and POST scripts which the condor_dagman job spawns directly as child processes on the submit host?

In that case, they inherit the OS priority of the condor_dagman process itself, which is determined by the condor_schedd's SCHED_UNIV_RENICE_INCREMENT config setting, since DAGMan is a scheduler universe job. To change this value, see:


If instead you mean the remote jobs which DAGMan submits and Condor executes, then the OS priority of the processes on the remote hosts are determined by the condor_startd's JOB_RENICE_INCREMENT XXX config setting:

I hope this helps!
