Re: [Condor-users] ERROR: Failed to commit job submission into the queue.

Have you tried using the latest development series download of Condor? It has some improvements for the size of the queue I think. I don't know whether it will take 300,000 jobs but we regularly have 10000 jobs in the queue without much worry.

I have set up a small(4 node) test grid using condor - 4 linux( 2.6 kernel)

job in the java universe, which ran a number (~20) of times quite happily. I
then ramped up the number of jobs, somewhat optimistically, to 300,000 and
left for the day. I've come back in to find the following error and zero
ERROR: Failed to commit job submission into the queue.

1) Is there a limit on the job queue length in condor?
2) If so, is this by design, or determined by an installation specific factor,
such as the O/S or available memory?
3) Where is this documented? Sorry, but I cannot find it anywhere in the
manual, or forum history.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Many thanks,
