Dear all,
     I am configuring the HTCondor Flock. There is an parament ind the
submit description file for a job, that is grid_resource
    According to the manul of HTCondor, the third field is the name of
the remote pool's  condor_collecter , and the second field is the name
of the remote condor_schedd daemon.
   Can you tell me how to find the detail value of them ?
   Thank you very much.

Hi David,

Flocking is HTCondor's way of allowing jobs that cannot immediately run within the pool of machines where the job was submitted to instead run on a different HTCondor pool. If a machine within HTCondor pool A can send jobs to be run on HTCondor pool B, then we say that jobs from machine A flock to pool B.

If Flocking is what you want, you don't need to mess around with grid universe, grid_resource, or any of that. On the condor_config for machines in pool A just modify the FLOCK_TO line to include the hostname of pool B central manager, and on the condor_configs for machines in pool B just modify the FLOCK_FROM line to include the hostname of pool A central manager.

Details are in:
