There should be no problem in Condor handling larger values for MAX_CONCURRENT_UPLOADS or _DOWNLOADS. However, in many cases, I doubt you will get higher throughput than when you use a lower level of concurrency. Depends on how many disk heads the files are sitting on. It would be nice if Condor kept track of the underlying resource utilization, but we thought adding these two transfer queues would at least be a good improvement over the previous solution, which was to blindly limit the rate at which jobs start up.

I hope it helps!
