Thanks for the speedy response on this.

We have around 300 execute hosts so I guess we definitely need a second
collector process. I can see taht I can put this on a different port using
COLLECTOR_HOST but how do I point the central manager at it ? Will
CONDOR_VIEW_HOST take a port number ?

The reason behind this is that I've moved the central manager to an SMP
so I'm trying to do some server consolidation. Users can infact submit
small numbers of jobs through the central manager but "power" users must
use a separate submit host. If I move this to the central manager would there
be any performance benefit in running a second schedd for these users. How
would I make sure that jobs went to the correct schedd ?
