Re: [HTCondor-users] Limit number of queued jobs

Hi Sarah,

The configuration setting MAX_JOBS_SUBMITTED can be used to limit the total number of jobs in the queue.


It cannot be used to limit individual users to a maximum number of submitted jobs while still allowing other users who have not reached the limit to submit.

Hi condor users & experts,

In the past we've had a problem when an external submitted goes off the
rails and submits tens of thousands of jobs into our queue. Condor has
problems tracking all the queued jobs and grinds to a halt. We'd like to
limit the number of queued jobs each user is allowed, and reject jobs
over that limit. I've done some googling and its not clear to me if that
can be done in Condor.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?
