I'm with the SAGE group on the wisc campus (www.sage.wisc.edu). We
have a cluster of 40 Mac G5 processors, and we are considering adding
a number of 8 core Mac Pros to the mix.
Are there plans for un-clipping the Mac version of Condor? We would
really like checkpointing to work.
The largest complaint with the condor setup is when a job gets
evicted for one reason or another, and the run needs to start from
scratch on another machine. The scientists I'm working with often
have week-long jobs, so this is a serious problem.
We might abandon using condor in favor of stand alone machines to put
fewer possible interruptions between the scientists and the hardware.
(I hope not, though. I'm sure I have things configured correctly this
PS: I realize I can configure condor to *never* evict a job, but my
intent is to only evict my 'nice' jobs whenever any other jobs are
