Re: [Condor-users] slow scheduling of dagman jobs

Thanks David,
I've tried adding the -disable flag, and it seems to help a little bit, but not a whole lot.   It's now averaging about 10 seconds per 100 instead of 11 seconds.

So this is still a pretty stark difference in performance from what you're seeing, and granted, my 4 core machine is probably pretty weak compared to a 16 core nahalem, but I guess I was still expecting to see some kind explanation by way of maxed out cpu, or something.. but I'm not seeing that at all.  I submitted 1200 jobs, just to sustain the "load" for a noticeable time of 2+ minutes.  During that time, the load average didn't even break 1, and the cpu usage increased from about 10% to about 35%.

Oh well, this isn't the end of the world, thanks for all of the info.

Sorry, that should be:

Sorry about that.

You should be able to emulate this behavior with the -disable flag to
condor_submit (if you want to try to see if that increases your speed).

Best of luck,
