- Subject: [Condor-users] Question concerning BOINC backfill and condor
I'm a little bit confused on the state rules for starting
and stopping backfill jobs (that chart diagram in the docs made my head spin!)
So here is my question. If I want to run boinc in
the background at all times EXCEPT when a condor job comes into the system, if I
set START = TRUE and don't use the EVICT_BACKFILL variable will that achieve my
goal? It's unclear to me if EVICT_BACKFILL is changed by CONDOR in the event of
a CONDOR job entering the system. Or is that variable only used when you want to
evict a BOINC backfill due to high CPU.
The system I'm configuring is dedicated and I don't
mind running BOINC all the time (since it's niced anyhow) but I DO want it to
vacate if a condor job needs to run.
