Re: [Condor-users] Group issues

It's my understanding that even if you assign a job (or all the jobs
from a user) to a group, this will not necessarily affect the
user's base priority factor if the user was already in the system.
If you want to tweak individual priorities between users who are
now in the same group but didn't use to be, you have to use
the condor_userprio -setfactor command.

I am not an expert on group accounting in Condor, but my understanding
is that you should be able to set +AccountGroup="<group>.<user>" in the
submit file, assign the group a quota in your config file, and the
result should be that each user within a group gets an independent
priority and independent usage tracking, but the group as a whole will
not be able to use more machines than you specified in the quota.

A couple of notes on this:

- It's "AccountingGroup", not "AccountGroup".

- If you just set it to "<group>" instead of "<group>.<user>" the quotas
  will not take effect (and you will also not get warned about it).
  (You need the period after the group name.)
