Hi Boris,

So you are saying your submit files look like:

  executable = foo.exe
  +AccountingGroup = "something"

If so, indeed we just need to tweak the formula a bit.  The startd already should be advertising the AccountingGroup of the running job in each slot, but it appends the UID_DOMAIN as well.  So I suggest trying a condor_config like so :

      # Set this to be how many slots each user can have on this machine
      # Tell the startd to cross-advertise AccountingGroup and Activity into each
      # slot, so every slot will have slot1_AccountingGroup, slot2_AccountingGroup, etc.
      STARTD_SLOT_ATTRS = $(STARTD_SLOT_ATTRS) AccountingGroup Activity
      # You will unfortunately need to extend this expression if you have more
      # than five slots... just follow the pattern.
       (TARGET.AccountingGroup =?= splitUserName(slot1_AccountingGroup)[0] && slot1_Activity == "Busy") + \
       (TARGET.AccountingGroup =?= splitUserName(slot2_AccountingGroup)[0] && slot2_Activity == "Busy") + \
       (TARGET.AccountingGroup =?= splitUserName(slot3_AccountingGroup)[0] && slot3_Activity == "Busy") + \
       (TARGET.AccountingGroup =?= splitUserName(slot4_AccountingGroup)[0] && slot4_Activity == "Busy") + \
       (TARGET.AccountingGroup =?= splitUserName(slot5_AccountingGroup)[0] && slot5_Activity == "Busy") + \
       0 )
      # Append to Start expression to only start jobs if this user is under 
      # the limit for this machine.

Hope the above helps.
