Re: [HTCondor-users] System setpriority()

Hi Brian,

It looks you are interested in JOB_RENICE_INCREMENT: 


This is a machine-owner-policy totally independent from the priority in condor 
jobs. Job-priority only affects the order that your *own* jobs are considered 
in, it can't even override cross-user priority factors unless they aren't
