No, this won't affect the scalability or performance of a pool.

Just curious, did you run into this because you actually had a 20-deep directory hierarchy?  Or just testing the limits of HTCondor?

Anyhow, thanks for the report.  Given that the performance impact is very minimal, perhaps we should bump the default ourselves.

    Hello Zach,
    Thanks for quick response.
    Any known implications of bumping this value on cluster consists of 500 nodes?

    Hello Vikrant,
    This is a circuit breaker in the code to prevent infinite recursion when doing filename remaps during transfer.
    The default (as you found) is that 20 directories deep means something might be going wrong.  Luckily, there is a config setting you can change that determines how deep HTCondor will go before it considers it a problem.  In your configuration, set:
            MAX_REMAP_RECURSIONS = 100  # Or any number you like if you need to go deeper
    Let me know if that works for you.
