The parallel scheduler treats the job "priority" value specially.
Whereas in other universe, the priority is applied strictly between jobs
belonging to the same user, in the parallel universe, the priority
applies across all users. Although this doesn't directly address fair
sharing, you could use it to get jobs to run in an order other than FIFO.
Keep in mind that you can set the priority at submit time and also later

We have a pool comprising several dedicated machines with different
architectures and CPU number. We installed condor 6.8.6 and we are
using a dedicated scheduler in order to run parallel jobs. In the
moment we have more jobs to run than available machines. The allocation
of resources by first in first out (FIFO) is leading to unfair sharing
of the resources. Our questions are:
1) Is there any way to overcome this problem ?
2) Will priorities be introduced in the dedicated scheduler soon in a
future condor release?
