Re: [Condor-users] 7.8.3: "rejected by your job requirements" again

request_memory = 0
  means the same thing as
request_memory = undefined.  

It tells condor_submit that is should not include any Memory test as part of the default requirements _expression_.

It's too late now. I will if it happens again, but I've already changed
the submit file to "request_memory = 1K".

Typically >> 7.8 it is recommended to use the Request* and not alter the requirements. 
What I actually want is "requrements = off" switch. I *know* that a)
condor gets memory requirements wrong for these jobs and b) all nodes in
my pool have enough resources to run these jobs.

As far as not clearly documented side-effects that are subject to change
without notice go, "Memory > 0" is a much cleaner one than
"request_memory = some-number".

What does "request_memory = 0" mean? -- nothing gets to run because
every node has > 0 memory?

What happens when I lie to condor and "request-memory = 1K" and then the
job actually asks for 2GB? And so on.

So it may be a much shinier knob for fine-tuning the requirements, but
unfortunately it's the exact opposite of what I need.
