Re: [Condor-users] More information from condor_stats

Quick thought re the below:

Assuming you indeed want the local users to trump the Condor jobs, you could set the SUSPEND expression in condor_config to suspend the Condor job when the NonCondorLoad crosses a threshold.  Not only would this be better for you local users, but it would also cause the startd the change its reported activity - thus perhaps improving your logging/graphing situation as well.

Subj:  [Condor-users] More information from condor_stats

I have setup pool logging on our condor cluster and have been using
condor view to create web pages of the cluster useage.  I would however
like to obtain more information about the cluster.  In particular I
would like to obtain the Condor load averages for all our nodes.  This
information doesnt appear to be logged in the viewhist files (only
state, keyboard and loadavg etc.).  Is there a way to increase the
amount of information stored in the viewhist files so that when i run
condor_stats more information is returned?

Reason for this : Our cluster is setup so that jobs always run on every
node.  However as the condor jobs run with a low priority, programs run
by local users on the nodes take over the cpu.  Unfortunately condor
still reports the node as Claimed-Busy (even though the node is busy
doing a local job and node a condor one).  Therefore when the graphs of
node state are produced the nodes never appear to be busy.  I would
therefore like to produce a graph of idle, UserLoad and CondorLoad so
that the useage of the cluster is more correctly displayed.

Thanks for any suggestions
