Re: [HTCondor-users] Disk space consumability


You may disable the node to not accept new jobs if filesystem utilization reaches certain percentage.Â

Use the cron feature of condor to continuously check the available space in filesystem and set the job class AD accordingly and use the _expression_ in STARTÂ condition to not accept more jobs on the node.Â

Hi together,

we are running into issues with some jobs requiring a lot of disk space, making our execute directories overflow.
Those jobs are requesting the necessary disk space via Request_Disk correctly, but the problem arises when multiple of these jobs arrive on a single node (via partitionable slots)
since HTCondor does not regard disk space as consumable (even though it is consumed, of course).

Does somebody have a good solution at hand for this issue? Is there a hidden knob to make disk space consumable?
