Re: [HTCondor-users] How to modify cpus

Hi Stephen,

Have you restarted condor after the config change?

Any changes involving slot type or num_cpus requires a restart of condor.

Thanks. There are 2 cpus in the system, and each has 8 cores; so, with
hyperthreads, the system sees 32 processors:

# cat /proc/cpuinfo  | grep processor | tail -n 1
processor    : 31

I.e. 0 .. 31 = 32.

It was set up with cpus=24, but changed to cpus=32 (config file is
below). The trouble is, is still acts as if it has 24; e.g. it will run
3 x 8 core jobs, or 24 x 1  core jobs or anything between, but does not
run (e.g.) 4 x 8 core jobs or 32 x 1 core jobs etc.



# cat /etc/condor/config.d/00-node_parameters
RalNodeLabel = E52630V3
RalScaling =  1.295
SLOT_TYPE_1               = cpus=32,mem=auto,disk=auto
NUM_SLOTS_TYPE_1          = 1
# processors : 32
# numberOfCpus : 2
