Re: [Condor-users] Max. amount of Jobs in queue

On the 6.8 series the limit is more like 15K (and slightly lower on XP
verses a server based install).

Hopefully you're on a seven series so the 150K sounds reasonable.

Have a look at job priorities...


And, man condor_submit (search for "priority = <integer>"

The Schedd has a default limit of *running* 200 jobs at a time, but that
won't effect you until you have >200 slots available. A single Schedd
should not have much problem with 150K submitted jobs. Are there
specific concerns?
