[HTCondor-users] Windows Keyboard Idle Isn't Working on 8.3.6


I installed HTCondor 8.3.6 on a Windows 7 64 bit, desktop to run jobs using msi package. I selected "Run jobs when the keyboard has been idle for 15 minutes, and the CPU is idle." and "Restart the job on a different machine." during installation, however neither one of these options does what it says. Jobs are sent to that machine even though I have been using the keyboard and the running jobs aren't paused/moved after I use the keyboard more and use the CPU to compile code.

condor_config contains KBDD in DAEMON_LIST option, but no other options regarding idle keyboard or cpu. condor_kbdd.exe is running as SYSTEM user and as me, and the logs for kbdd don't show any errors (just messages about starting up and listening on port).

Anyone else experiene this? Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can troubleshoot this problem?

I was digging and 7.6 documentation has examples for configuring policy: http://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/manual/v7.6/3_5Policy_Configuration.html#sec:Time_of_Day_Policy However 8.3.* documentation doesn't have this (or I can't find it) and I assume the msi choices along with default settings for KBDD should be enough that I don't have to add "WANT_SUSPEND" and "WANT_VACATE" settings. If not, any help on minimum set of configurations I need would help.
