So really a "condor_config_val -set" SOAP call would help you a lot.
The collector is a "soft cache", meaning it's state is updated
periodically and if it isn't updated it goes away. Therefore, a
startd will periodically send a new ad to the collector and that
ad will overwrite any old ads for the startd. If you directly
modify the startd's ad with InsertAd your modification will only
persist until the next time the startd updates its ad.
Ok I buy that. So whats the use of this insertAd, if it is going
last only for UPDATE_INTERVAL
This is not true. Generally you do not know how long your change will
be visible, because you do not know at what point between updates you
are making your change. At best your change will last just shorter
than the UPDATE_INTERVAL and at worst is will last for no time at all.
