Re: [Condor-users] Running "light" jobs on machines with users

What you're asking is not simple if you want to do it in a REAL proper
way, which will then allow to extend it further and further. I think
you should have a look at the following DOC:

But there is a simple way to do something close to what you want.

1. you should add to every job's classad a parameter saying if it is
light or not. You do it by adding to your submit file:


2. In your start expression you should say something like ( sorry -
don't remember the exact syntax)


if you want just ALWAYS to allow LIGHT_JOBs, then it's even simplier.

We have a small condor pool, but during office hours, most executing
computers are busy with users working on them. Therefore, I can not
execute heavy jobs on these machines. However, since I also have
several "light" jobs that require little CPU, I would like to setup a
configuration that allows the execution of only "light" machines,
regardless of user activity.

Any Ideas how to do this?

How do I setup different starting rules for different virtual machines?
