Re: [HTCondor-users] CPU Affinity in condor v8.9.1


Thanks for the response. Here is the issue with "NUM_CPUS".

I have attached the partitionable slot configuration that Tom put
together for the cluster. I haven't touched this since he moved-on. You
can see at the top he put:

num_cpus = 2 * $(DETECTED_CPUS)

I have no clue as to why this was done, but I suspect it has to do with
the partitionable slot configurations in the rest if this file. Which
looks to partition the cluster into two partitions, one seems to be
dedicated to the 'online_cbc_gstlal_inspiral' analysis and the other for
all other jobs.

Thus I don't know if I should be changing this setting. Which is one
reason I looked into the cgroups and other cpu affinity settings.

Tom also set the RAM in this file as well, which is a reason I am
investigating cgroups for memory-limiting condor as well as cpu-limiting
