Re: [Condor-users] Interactive jobs

Hi Bruce,

I took  UWCS default values out of the following expressions.

WANT_SUSPEND            =
WANT_VACATE             =
START                   =
SUSPEND                 =

I then use the command, condor_reconfig -all, to notifiy all masters for
new changes.   (Do I need to restart master on the centrel manager host?)

Unfortunately, no difference.   Xterm still goes away after a few seconds.
The StarterLog file shows the same message about suspending all jobs.

Do I need to assign some value for the SUSPEND expression?

Have a look at your SUSPEND expression in your condor_config file.  If it
is set to the default UWCS_SUSPEND expression, then your job will get
suspended almost immediately, as that expression looks at "KeyboardBusy",
i.e. if it thinks there's been "keyboard activity" (as would be triggered
by the xterm) within the last minute then it'll suspend the job.  That
would explain the "Suspending all jobs." log message at 11:09:44.
