a quick suggestion for the Condor manual.
It would help if Section 126.96.36.199 (Job Suspension) of the Condor manual (e.g.
with the nice per-slot suspend/continue example explicitely mentioned that
the various slotX_Attributes are available only if the STARTD_SLOT_ATTRS
configuration attribute is set as per section 3.3.10
(http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/manual/v7.3/3_3Configuration.html#SECTION004310000000000000000), as things fail pyrotechnically with the startd exiting
when the latter attribute is not set.
I hope this saves some time to the next person who'd like to try.
In response to your helpful prod, we spruced up the suspension slot
example and added some features so that the policy works without
modification for machines with any number of cores. That will be in the
next development release.
