Re: [HTCondor-users] Debugging NEGOTIATOR_PRE_JOB_RANK

Thanks, that should work but is too strict. I just realized that I wasn't precise in the way I described the problem. I'm not looking for a strict restriction but a priority. I want the jobs to be executed at the servers unless there are no available slots - then they should be directed to workstations. I was hoping that the NEGOTIATOR_PRE_JOB_RANK I presented should achieve that, but it seems that it is not working. Hence the question about debugging.

Try this.


Add this to START:

START       = ($(START)) && (Server =?= 1)


And add this to your sub file:

+Server = 1

I'm administering a condor pool with multiple workstations and two dedicated machines (32 cores each). I wanted to jobs to be executed on the dedicated servers instead of workstations so I added this to the servers configs


IsServer = True



and this to the negotiator config

NEGOTIATOR_PRE_JOB_RANK =  (IsServer =?= True && RemoteOwner =?= UNDEFINED) + \

                                                      RemoteOwner =?= UNDEFINED


However when I send dummy sleep jobs to the cluster they get executed on the servers and workstations. How can I debug this? Does it matter that the machines use Dynamic slots? Does LoadAvg is taken into account in choosing slots?


Thanks in advance!
