Re: [HTCondor-users] How to limit the number of running jobs on a startd?

Hi Jose,


Assuming these are single core jobs, you can just set:

    NUM_CPUS = 26


In the config on your execute machines.  This should work whether you are using static or partitionable slots.

Subject: [HTCondor-users] How to limit the number of running jobs on a startd?



Is it documented somewhere the options to limit the number of jobs on

a given host?

Let's say, for example, you have a host with 32 slots. By default it

can have 32 concurrent jobs. Are they easy ways to limit that to, for

example, 26 jobs?


I see there is a classad MAX_JOBS_RUNNING, but it seems to be for the

schedd. Can it be used on the startd?


Any suggestion is more than welcome.

If documented somewhere, a link would be very helpful.
