I'm currently also investigating a similar problem to this. I've got a
USER_JOB_WRAPPER script that sets processor affinity based on the
value of the environment variable _CONDOR_SLOT. What I've not yet
managed to figure out is a way to make this integrate with the
RequiresWholeMachine mechanism from http://nmi.cs.wisc.edu/node/1482.

Basically putting
+RequiresWholeMachine = true
in a job submission causes the job to only run on slot1 and other
slots on the machine to be set to owner. Which brings me to my real
question: How can I cause the +RequiresWholeMachine in the job
submission to set an environment variable for the USER_JOB_WRAPPER

I slightly optimistically tried using:
Which didn't work, as I suspected.

Any ideas?
