I have configured a pool of public library PCs for a Condor network.
I wonder whether the values are correct. This is what I use:
# Amount of time in sec the pool pc must be idle before Condor will start a job.
StartIdleTime = 5 * $(MINUTE)
# Amount of time in sec the pool pc must be idle before resumption of a suspended job.
ContinueIdleTime = 5 * $(MINUTE)
# Amount of time in sec a job may be suspended before more drastic measure are taken.
MaxSuspendTime = 5 * $(MINUTE)
# Amount of time in sec a job may be checkpointing before we give up and kill it outright.
MaxVacateTime = 5 * $(MINUTE)
Is it wrong to set $(MaxSuspendTime) equal to $(ContinueIdleTime) ?
Is my understanding correct that $(MaxSuspendTime) should always be larger than $(ContinueIdleTime), because otherwise suspended jobs are always thrown off the machine after 5 minutes....Is that correct?
