- Subject: [HTCondor-users] proposed simplification to DAG priorities
We are proposing a change/simplification of how DAG node priorities are
determined in HTCondor.
Right now a node's priority is determined as follows:
effective node prio = max(explicit node prio, parents' effective prios,
We propose to change the rule to this:
effective node prio = explicit node prio + DAG prio
(explicit node prio is 0 if not actually defined)
(Note that this change will mean that the priorities of a node's parent
node(s) will no longer influence the priority of the node.)
Please let us know if this will cause problems for anyone (or if you think
it's a good idea).
We think that the new, simpler, version will be easier to understand, and
easier for other software, such as Pegasus, to deal with.
