Re: [Condor-users] Question about using Condor in a non-Grid environment

This is what I thought.  Rank translates to start order but first to start is not the same thing as first to be ready to process data.  This isn't just resource management.  It's also dependency management.  The parallel universe doesn't provide dependency management.  Whether or not the parallel universe is usable hinges on whether or not Jan's team members want to write this dependency management into their tools.

Fundamentally, at least some part of the dependency management must be in the user tools -- for only they know when they are ready to accept requests from their peers.
