Re: [HTCondor-users] slow submission rate

Thanks, the FSYNC trick solved the issue! :)

Are you timing just condor_submit, or are you also timing job run/completion rates?

Job submissions cause the schedd to commit a transaction to $(SPOOL)/job_queue.log.  If the disk containing that is slow, submissions will be slow.  One way to verify if this is the limiting factor is to add the following to your configuration:


Another thing to keep in mind is that if you can batch submissions of many jobs into a single submit file, there will be fewer transactions.

I'm experimenting with condor: I'm trying to submit a lot of dummy

I have only a single schedd. I'm trying to stresstest this schedd.
These jobs are in the vanilla universe.

The problem is that I couldn't reach better result than 4-6
submission/sec, which seems a little low. I can't see any real
bottleneck on the machine, so I suspect that it's because of some
default value of a configuration option which throttles down the
submission requests.

Any idea how to solve this?
