Accounting Groups are the way that HTCondor can assign resources out to schedds/jobs via claims.
They work based on pie-spin and can be specified as either dynamic fractions or whole numbers.
1. The recommendation is that you add the accounting groups in a new file within /etc/condor/config.d/. As both condor_config and condor_config.local can be overridden by rpm/condor upgrade.
2. The accounting group can be specified in the job submit file using accounting_group = ââ. However thereâs no direct concept of group membership for accounting-groups. People usually solve this with SUBMIT_ATTRS on the schedd or by checking membership with a SUBMIT_REQUIREMENT.
3. You could make the START _expression_ for the machine an _expression_ of whether the accounting group.
START = (target.AccountingGroup =?= âgroup_target.user.groupâ)
