Re: [Condor-users] Negotiator problem? Jobs not assigned to idlemachines.

Good suggestion.

Name       Cpu Memor LoadAv  KbdIdle    State     StateTime  Acti
vm1@nbs29.   1  1019 0.010   0+18:55:21 Unclaim   0+04:01:32 Idle

All the unclaims have been at that state for 4 hours or so. Other
claimed machines have been in that state for at least 4 hours. Any else
I can try?

Obvious question, but you have (had?) "Unclaimed" machines in your pool
according to condor_status?

Try doing "condor_status -state" and see how long these Unclaimed
machines have been Unclaimed (by looking at the StateTime column).
Perhaps these machines are being claimed and run jobs, but then
immediately toss the job off?  Thus whenever you look, you typically see
the machine Unclaimed and the job idle?  This could happen if, for
example, the stdin file specified does not exist or something like that.
