Re: [Condor-users] how to change location of _CONDOR_SCRATCH_DIR

You can use LOCAL_DIR to move the whole local directory to a non-shared
area, and then use LOCAL_CONFIG_FILE to point back to the
part that is shared. I would not recommend that this
area be /tmp, though, unless it is very big.. You are supposed
to have 10GB of scratch dir for every job slot you support on the node.

To move SPOOL or EXECUTE (or LOG) to a separate location, you
can set those variables appropriately in the config file. I think
this is what you want to do.

I am trying to move the condor scratch directory from an nfs-mounted

everything that goes into LOCAL_DIR/execute to go into /tmp. What do I
need to change in condor config files to do that? I tried setting
CONDOR_SCRATCH_DIR to /tmp but this has no effect. I could certainly make
the whole LOCAL_DIR point to /tmp but I am not sure yet if I like this

Thanks,  Ilya
