[HTCondor-users] Centralized job handling by central admin



All our Windows clients have Condor 8.4.7 installed, including the ability to submit jobs. Is it possible to send your entire job from your local machine to the central admin (including required files) and let the central admin handle the job?  Two reasons why I would like to achieve this.


1.       If a large number of jobs are submitted from your local machine. It would require a lot of system performance (CPU and memory). Our central admin is a physical Linux server with sufficient CPU and memory to run a large amount of jobs simultaneously.

2.       Some of our submitters have a laptop. While your job is running, the laptop need to be connected to the network, otherwise your results canât find their way back. Laptop users will appreciate the ability to disconnect there laptop and take it home while their jobs are still running.


If this is possible, the results that are send back to the central admin needs to be stored on a central storage. Is there any tutorial how to change the configuration? At this moment I have no clue where to begin.


Kind regards,
