How can I setup condor so that the user with the better priority always gets to run their job first?
We have a problem where:
User A submits 100s of jobs and fills the pool repeatedly.
After user A submits another set of jobs to the pool, user B submits their first job.
After user B submits their job, but while all servers are busy, user A submits another batch of jobs.
User A’s first set of jobs will complete, and her second set of jobs will start, and user B’s job will not start.
Running condor_analyze on user B’s job shows:
8 match, but prefer another specific job despite its worse user-priority
Why is user A able to continue to get their jobs to start, even though user B has a better priority?
How can I change this so that the user with the better priority always gets to run their job first?
We are using condor 6.7.19
