Re: [Condor-users] Max Number of Jobs Submission

Without knowing exactly what your jobs are doing, it's hard to tell you exactly, but that central manager, even if it is also the submit node, should be able to handle more jobs than your cluster can run. I allow each of my desktops (I don't have a single submit node) to run 150 jobs, and I have some dedicated submit nodes with limits of 200 and 500.

The condor_config line below controls the number of running jobs from a single submit node:

##  What's the maximum number of jobs you want a single submit machine
##  to spawn shadows for?
MAX_JOBS_RUNNING        = 150

What is the maximum number of jobs can be submitted at any given time, (i.e) what is the max number of jobs can be queued ?

How to calculate this?

Our Condor pool (condor 6.8.4) central manager is running on RHEL 4.0.

It is a Double dual core Xeon processor (total 8 CPU) of 2.8 GHz and 8 GB Memory.

And pool has around 150 nodes.

Is there any way to set the limit for the max jobs, in order to avoid the crash?
