We've been using Condor to soak up idle PBSPro cycles for years. Our
recipe is at:


The big issue that I currently see is that short PBS jobs
unnecessarily kill Condor jobs. For example, a PBS job that starts on
a 24-core node can kick off up to 24 Condor jobs. If the PBS job dies
immediately, then the Condor work is lost. Depending on local policy,
you may consider suspending jobs for a few minutes before vacating.
