Re: [HTCondor-users] Summary: best practices for data untar/unzip

I've loved HTCondor cgroups since 2013 (with the small exception of the handful of bugs I reported to both CHTC and Red Hat, since resolved). I guarantee that you'll love them too. They're fantastic, and they make everything better, and make your systems happier. Everyone should use them.

... so the answer appears to be:

- we start using cgroups.

It's the right thing to do conceptually, anyway: it's not the job's problem if the execute node can't handle the work. The submit side is not the right place to deal with it, it's the node admin's job.
