[Condor-users] uniform distribution of processes on physical nodes

Hi, all...

I have a Condor Cluster with 7 physical nodes, each with 2 dual-core Xeon
processors. By default, Condor assigns 8 virtual machines to each of them. When
I submit, e.g., 14 processes, Condor distributes them unevenly on the physical
nodes, so that, e.g., 3 of them run 4 processes, one of them run 2 procesess,
and the rest stay idle.

What's the best way to achieve an uniform distribution of processes on the
physical nodes, so that, in the previous example, each physical node run two

I've tried it by stating the following at the process submit configuration file:

Requirements = (TotalLoadAvg < 2)

, but it doesn't work.

Do I need to use the TotalCondorLoadAvg parameter instead?

Thanks in advance,
