Re: [HTCondor-users] Pre-empting two jobs

Hi Evan,

I assume you are referring to a partitionable slot setup (also called âp-slotsâ)?

In that case, I think you are looking for a feature called âpartitionable slot preemptionâ.  According to the ticketing system, it is slated for the 8.3.6 release (preliminarily targeted for June 18).  That said, I donât see documentation for the feature yet, so I donât know if itâs going to slip.
