Re: [HTCondor-users] condor_defrag does not start to defrag

One suggestion on this -

The Defrag daemon will pick a random STARTD to drain if all of the candidates have the same DEFRAG_RANK
so it might be wise to have a RANK expression that puts the STARTDs in to buckets rather than one that 
is continuously variable.

I don't have anything better to suggest at this time.

Additional finding - probably not that surprising especially due to low 
interval values:

With the default setting of

DEFRAG_RANK = -ExpectedMachineGracefulDrainingBadput

the same machine(s) seems to be drained again and again. Thus, we will 
try to factor in "LastDrainStartTime" as well to fix this and report 
back - unless someone already has a good setting here and would like to 
share it :)
