[HTCondor-users] Experimenting with preemption

Hi everyone,

I'm starting to do some testing with preemptable jobs, after years of sidestepping it due to the limitations of our usual applications, and I was wondering if there's a way to manually trigger a preemption event for a job to verify the mechanisms for a given application. The condor_hold command hard-kills everything, and condor_vacate works on machines rather than jobs from what I can tell. It looks so far like I'd have to send a test job to a particular machine and make sure it's the only job there, then condor_vacate it, in order to test that I have the right kill_sig and what have you for the job, but I was hoping to find something that would work on a job level directly.

Thanks for any suggestions!
