Re: [HTCondor-users] condor_status update time

Isn't there also a knob by which you can also control how long classads live in the collector,

i.e. if they are not updated in <n> seconds they just drop out?

Quick comment on the above:

If you do not want to be patient with running jobs, you could add the
"-fast" flag like so:
   condor_off -fast -master  [node name]
which typically shuts things down within a few seconds, killing the job
with SIGKILL if needed.  This should be what happens when you do a
'systemctl stop condor'.
