[Condor-users] out-of-memory issues in parallel universe

Hi folks,

We have some macih es with 4 Gb RAM, and some with 6 Gb RAM all in the same cluster, and may be seeing some over-extension of memory for MPI jobs that are asssuming that there's 6 Gb of RAM available.

Is there some way of specifying the image size, and restricting jobs to larger memory compute nodes, for MPI jobs submitted in the parallel universe?

Also, what's the recommended way to enforce memory constraints on jobs, in general and in particular in the parallel universe? ulimit? something else?
