Ok so I try use cgroups.

I've install it and create a group for htcondor like in the documentation 
but what I have to add in configuration file or submit file ? because is not 
clear in documentaition.

I just add this in configuration file:
BASE_CGROUP = htcondor

And I set up the /htcondor/memory.limit_in_bytes to 500MB but my test are 
not concluding
