Re: [Condor-users] run condor view on the central manager ?

It turns out that if you want to do it all on the central server, you
don't needa  a view_server at all.  the main collector can do the work
of view server and collector too.  I have a 400-node  2000-slot
cluster configured in this manner.  I believe the caution is mainly
historical.  I would also note that I have a dedicated machine
to be the collector/negotiator that doesn't run any schedd's or shadows.

Quick question - is it possible to run a condor view server on
the same host as the central manager. I know the manual says
that it should be on a different host but why the restriction ?
Could the condor view collector listen on a different port to
the manager collector and the manager be configured to send it's
pool info to it.

thanks in advance,
