Re: [Condor-users] Running virtual machine in condor pool


Some advantages of using vmuniverse

1.) Helps for jobs which require a complex-preconfig'd environment (e.g. Matlab)
2.) Completely sandbox'd 
3.) A method of initializing pre-configured/scalable sw-services.

... The list goes on. 

If you have a more specific question feel free to ask, or there is always:

Subject: [Condor-users] Running virtual machine in condor pool

Hello condor team,

i have some doubt regarding virtual machines in condor pool

If i run multiple virtual machine on a machine in my condor pool.
then no doubt i can have a big condor pool.
but then what effect it will have on time required to finish a job.

Does anyone is using virtual machine in condor pools, and what
advantages and disadvantages were observed when having a condor
pool of virtual machines.
