Re: [Condor-users] greedy users

You want to use group quotas.  Assign users to an accounting
group and then they can only use X slots.  It can be a user-by-user
group if necessary.

By itself group accounting is voluntary but what I do is
to put a wrapper around condor_submit to append the accountinggroup
automatically to the classad.

We have several of our PHD candidates who submit massive amounts of

overnight on a grid which has only 3000 slots. I would like to ban
them but I can't do that :-) I too am a student. But, how can I set a
hard limit of 50 slots for these users? Btw, fair scheduling is
enabled but I would still like to put a hard limit. Any thoughts? Did
anyone else go thru this scenario? What did you do to fix it?
