I would like to change the max job limit that is defined on a dagman job.

I've read the following thread which gives some indication to handle this:

In my case I'm trying:
1. to hold the dagman job
2. change its "Arguments" value
3. release the job.

My problem is to replace the "-MaxJobs xxx" part in the "Arguments" attributes.

Hmm, I'll have to think a bit about changing the arguments correctly.

This won't do you any good for this job, but for the future you might want to define maxjobs in a per-DAG config file. Then if you need to change the maxjobs setting you can just do condor_hold/edit config file/condor_release.
