Re: [Condor-users] Maximizing running parallel jobs

Looking at your central manager configuration file, you have set:
##  When is this machine willing to start a job?
UWCS_START = ( (KeyboardIdle > $(StartIdleTime)) \
                    && ( $(CPUIdle) || \
                         (State != "Unclaimed" && State != "Owner")) )

Are the configuration files of your execute nodes similar and are they dedicated machines or utilised by interactive users?
Initial impression is that by making Condor play nice and wait for Keyboard Idle and CPU Idle, you may be reducing the number of slots which you can run on. Does condor_status show Unclaimed or Owner on the slots?
You could always experiment by setting START = TRUE, to see if that has any effect.
