Re: [Condor-users] Problems submitting jobs using deferral_time

Never mind about this request. I was able to figure it out on my own. For future reference, just read the following section in the manual: http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/manual/v7.2/2_12Time_Scheduling.html#6001. I didn’t read all the way through... the manual is actually very explicit about it.

Subject: [Condor-users] Problems submitting jobs using deferral_time


I am trying to submit jobs using the deferral_time feature but I have failed every time, I also tried deferral_time = (CurrentTime + 60) but the result is the same error. My nodes are windows not unix based systems. To use the deferral_time I have to convert the date using online Epoch converters but no luck with any of the sites I tried. All the times I submitted jobs the comeback with the following error:

“-- Schedd: grant.earthdata.com : <>

 ID      OWNER            SUBMITTED     RUN_TIME ST PRI SIZE CMD               


036.000:  Run analysis summary.  Of 8 machines,

      8 are rejected by your job's requirements

      0 reject your job because of their own requirements

      0 match but are serving users with a better priority in the pool

      0 match but reject the job for unknown reasons

      0 match but will not currently preempt their existing job

                Last failed match: Mon May 11 15:20:42 2009

                Reason for last match failure: no match found


WARNING:  Be advised:

   No resources matched request's constraints

   Check the Requirements _expression_ below:


Requirements = (Opsys == "WINNT50" || Opsys == "WINNT51" || Opsys == "WINNT52") && (Arch == "INTEL") && (Disk >= DiskUsage) && ((Memory * 1024) >= ImageSize) && (HasFileTransfer) && (HasJobDeferral) && (((CurrentTime + ScheddInterval) >= (DeferralTime - DeferralPrepTime)) && (CurrentTime < (DeferralTime + DeferralWindow)))”


The jobs I submitted is the same one, please see below, and is a simple sleep job.

universe = vanilla

executable = sleep.exe

requirements = Opsys == "WINNT50" || Opsys == "WINNT51" || Opsys == "WINNT52"

transfer_input_files = cygwin1.dll,cygintl-3.dll,cygiconv-2.dll

Deferral_Time = (CurrentTime + 120)



log = ALL.log

notification = Never

should_transfer_files = YES

when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT_OR_EVICT

copy_to_spool = FALSE

arguments = 20


queue 100


Any Ideas how to tackle this issue?
