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

I've experimented with the DISK_EXCEEDED solution at http://nmi.cs.wisc.edu/node/1477.

This solution doesn't prevent transfer_input_files from pushing over enough data to exceed the limit, and neither does it stop a job from creating enough output to go over the limit.

I tested this by setting the limit to a low value rather than trying to fill the disc, and watching an executing job's files as they are created; the jobs do get preempted when expected, but not until after the limit is exceeded.
