Re: [Condor-users] condor guru!!

Hi Bruce

Checkout the following section in the manual.


In particular, the entries NUM_CPUS and the section with a variety of
entries to do with virtual machines (VIRTUAL_MACHINES).

This will allow you to run multiple condor jobs at once on the one

Naturally, they will run slower, and you will need to divide up the RAM
allocation but it should do what you want.

(Condor can only run as many jobs on a machine as it thinks there are
