Re: [HTCondor-users] Change MaxJobs limit on a running dagman job

Thanks for your answer, I was hoping to be able to do so without editing the dag file to remove any issue with file access or UAC. Anyway, I'll try to do it your way but it would be great to be able to change arguments directly.

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: https://lists.cs.wisc.edu/archive/htcondor-users/2010-October/msg00036.shtml

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.
