Re: [Condor-users] intel amd binaries : how to submit ?

AMD opteron machines only show up as X86_64 if you
are running the 64 bit kernel, else they register as intel.
As far as I know that's the only hook that condor has got, relying
on the output of uname.  If you wanted fancier architectures I think
you would have to do something in the classad.

As you say, there's always the good old shell script trick,
/proc/cpuinfo should tell all you need to know.

Hi Nicolas and Greg,

Correct me if i'm wrong but I beleive that an AMD
machine will appear on your "condor_status" as an
intel machine. I currently have a machine on my pool
with a AMD sempron processor (which I belive just
about supports all of the intel instruction set) and
it just shows up as an "INTEL" machine. Nicolas if
what Greg suggested doesn't work, I suggest taking a
look how to add to your class-ad list. By doing so you
can specify unique attributes to your machines which
in turn can help you decided what, where, and how to
run things.

Hi all

We have some program with specific compil options
for AMD or Intel processors. I would like to submit
the jobs to my pool so that it can go on any
machine, then according to the CPU, it starts the
correct binary program : can I specify this in the
submit file (if yes, How ?), or do I have to trick
with some shell program to do that ?

Thanks in advance


If you have two binaries, you can name them




and in your submit file, specify your executable as

executable = program.$(ARCH)
