Re: [Condor-users] Limiting jobs' disc usage?

In a nutshell: no.

You've got it pretty much correct there. Condor doesn't do any sort of
enforcement on resource use once a job lands on a machine. You can,
however, implement Condor cron jobs on your startd's that monitor jobs
and do various things to them based on their ClassAd's. For example: you
could watch the disk use of each job on a machine and vacate any jobs
that use more than X amount of disk.
