Re: [Condor-users] JOB_RENICE_INCREMENT and Windows XP jobs

A quick look at the 6.6.11 code indicates that at least in that stream
on windows there is no granularity to the renice - you are either IDLE
(Low) or the default.

Try setting this to 0 instead (this is special cased in the code) but
you will likely get the same priority as the parent process (at least
a step up to Normal)

I have JOB_RENICE_INCREMENT set to 1 for all my dedicated Windows
machines. I was expecting to see the processes launched by the
condor_starter processes to be High or at least Normal priority when
viewed under taskman. But they're all Low priority . Is that a bug? Is
there a way to get Condor to boost these processes to Normal (or even
better: High)? These are dedicated machines so they're always running
jobs and not cycle stealing.
