Re: [HTCondor-users] purpose of SHADOW_WORKLIFE option

There is no good reason for it to be anything other than forever.
I suspect that the value was set to be conservative when the feature of shadow re-use was first added. We will be changing the default for SHADOW_WORKLIFE to something more reasonable for the next development release.

other than "infinite"? What's the point of not reusing shadow
processes forever? Is there any memory leak in it which requires this
periodical "restart"?
