Re: [Condor-users] Maximum jobs on submit machine

Fellow condor users,

I am finding that there is a limit to the number of jobs that will run
on a given submit machine, and that number is different depending on the
machine. I have already verified that this limit is well below the
default MaxJobsRunning value. For example on one machine the maximum
seems to be about 85, and on another it’s about 50. Any ideas on this?



default=ceiling(ifThenElse( $(DETECTED_MEMORY)*0.8*1024/800 < 10000, $(DETECTED_MEMORY)*0.8*1024/800, 10000 ))

So the MaxJobsRunning is a function of RAM in the box. If you're on Windows it is more complicated. Generally, I recommend using a non-Windows machine for hosting the condor_schedd.
