can anybody explain what happens? I have tried to avoid that any job is being
evicted. There are still enough vm available and I use the following in the
condor_config.local of each machine.
SUSPEND = FALSE
START = TRUE
RELEASE_DIR = /condor/home/condor-6.6.10
PREEMPT = FALSE
KILL = False
WANT_SUSPEND = False
WANT_VACATE = False
do I miss something or is there any serious problem occoured? How can I found
out what happens?
If you want to *COMPLETELY* disable preemption, as well as
- setting PREEMPT to FALSE on each execute machine,
you also need to
- set RANK to 0 (its default) - or, in fact set RANK to any
*constant* number - on each execute machine,
- set PREEMPTION_REQUIREMENTS to FALSE on your central manager.
See Section 188.8.131.52 (Disabling Preemption) in the V6.6.10 manual, or
Section 184.108.40.206 (Disabling Preemption) in the V6.7 series manual if using
the 6.7 series:
For Condor 6.6.10:
For Condor 6.7:
Note that in the 6.7 series (from 6.7.1 onwards) there's a different way
of "disabling" preemption - as described in the V6.7 manual - you just set
a "long" MaxJobRetirementTime...
P.S. By default, Condor doesn't use (or need) a "VACATE" configuration
file macro, so you don't need to set "VACATE =" in your
condor_config.local file unless (possibly) you are using it for
something elsewhere in your configuration files.
