I would like to have a mechanism to prevent a user from submitting new
jobs if he or she already has a large number of jobs in the queue (e.g.
SUBMIT_MAX_PROCS_IN_CLUSTER and MAX_JOBS_SUBMITTED help, but don't solve
the problem completely because they are global limits, and I'd like to
have per-user limits.
What I am thinking of doing is replacing condor_submit with a wrapper
that runs condor_q to check if the user submitted too many jobs, and if
so, drops a config file with appropriate SUBMIT_REQUIREMENT_* to block
the user from submitting more. The wrapper would be clever enough to
skip condor_q if its called too frequently.
Does anybody know of a simpler way to have per-user limits on the number
of jobs in queue?
Is there a way to do something similar for jobs submitted using python
bindings and/or remote submissions?
