Sometime, some users complaint that their jobs are waiting even if the pool is empty or when some machines are available.
These persons are submitting vanilla jobs with around 600 sub-jobs and they are very quick, let's say 5min each sub-jobs.
When almost all sub-jobs are done, the last sub-jobs are waiting maybe 5min and then they are executed. I would like to understand why Condor do this and if there is a way to disable this configuration in order to avoid the waiting time.
As far as I remember, this happening from the beginning, when we had the basic configuration.
I printed out a part of the Negotiationlog below:
