Re: [Condor-users] Condor Job Definition with Required Disk Space ....

Hi Group,

I wanted to know if it is possible to define inside a job the required available  disk space I need before starting the job.
So if I define a job with a minimum_disk_space = 10TB and there is only 5GB the job will skip.....

We are in a process of converting 100TB of old movies into a XVID format, and each conversion is divided into small files that reconstruct at the end of the process...

Sometimes the process hangs up since there is no more available disk space.

Maybe someone has an idea?
You can do this with a custom attribute:

# My disk needs in are 100 MB, but report it in kB
+MyDiskNeeds = 100 * 1024
requirements = Disk >= MyDiskNeeds

You could also write:

requirements = Disk >= (100 * 1024)

But the former has more flexibility in the long run.
