Re: [Condor-users] job is not kept in queue even though execute machine is busy

You should use the Requirements expression, not Rank, for a hard
requirement. A job's Rank expression is a preference, i.e. it will
make your jobs prefer running on that machine, but they will still be
able to run elsewhere. If you change the setting to:
Requirement = (Machine == "xyz")
Condor will only schedule jobs to that machine.

Another feature to be aware of is that by default Condor will
advertise slots for all of machine 'xyz's cores. Running jobs
generally take up one slot. If there are more than 1 cores, when you
submit the second job, it will run in the second, still-idle core.

To see how many slots are present for a machine 'xyz', type 'condor_status xyz'

Hope this helps,
