[Condor-users] Shortest possible VMware job runs over 1 hour !?!


With VMware 1.0.6 & Condor, I have embedded a ttyLinux OS
(fits on a 15 MB hard disk) as a VM universe job.

For testing purpose, I designed the ttyLinux virtual machine to
boot up and immediately shutdown again.

This minimized job still takes more than an hour on a pool PC
(2.5 GHz dual core CPUs, 2GB Ram etc.)

This can't be normal, but I have no clue what to do.
Could there be something wrong with the configuration?

This is the condor submit file:

Universe = vm
Executable = vm_job
Log = vm.log
vm_type  = vmware
vm_networking = false
vm_checkpoint = true
vm_memory = 64
vmware_dir = /home/myname/VM
vmware_should_transfer_files = YES

Thank you!
