In your job submit file, set request_cpus and request_memory. This tells HTCondor
how many resources to allocate on a server for you job, and the remaining resources
on the server can go to other jobs.
Or perhaps you want to know how and administer of a server in a HTCondor cluster
can reserve resources on a server to only run specific types of jobs? Is so see:

Just list the name of the folder (subdirectory) in your transfer_input_files, which will move
the directory and its contents into the scratch working directory on the execute node.
If you just want the contents of the folder, put a trailing slash on the name of
the subdirectory name.
Details and examples are in the manual at
Also see the condor_submit man page ("man condor_submit"), also available online at
You want to looks at transfer_input_files.
Hope the above helps,
