Re: [Condor-users] Job rejected because ImageSize is too big

Can you post your submit file contents and find the size of the executable?

How big is the executable? This sounds very large. If you type condor_status you can see how much memory Condor thinks the machine or slot has. If it says 900 this is 900Mb.

I don't know how big the executable is; I'll have to ask the person who submitted it.  It's a script that launches some PVM processes.  We've been struggling a bit to find a way to get this application to run, since CondorPVM doesn't seem to be supported anymore.

Condor lists each slot on my 4 gig, dual-CPU nodes as having 1976 megabytes of RAM.

In your submission file you can use this value as the minimum amount of memory for the job.

I thought of that, but won't Condor just recalculate the image size after 15 seconds and decide it's too big?

Hope this helps.

I've got a Vanilla universe job that was idled after 1 hour and 45 minutes of runtime due to this:

    Condition                         Machines Matched    Suggestion
    ---------                         ----------------    ----------
1   ( ( 1024 * target.Memory ) >= 9140000 )0                   REMOVE

What's the best way to override this in the submit file?  Should I be setting Memory on the requirements line, or should I be overriding the computed ImageSize somehow?  I know the figure must be wrong because the machine only has a total of 4 gigs of ram and 2 gigs of swap, so the process would have exhausted available memory and died if it were really that large.
