Re: [HTCondor-users] giving priority to a job already queued

The proper way to do this  in a one-off case is to adjust the job ownerâs priority factor using condor_userprio âsetfactor command. Your pending job should have an entry in the condor_userprio output, and by changing the priority factor to, say, 0.1, then you raise the effective priority of the job to put it at the top of the list to be considered for matching.

For non-one-off cases, you can set up an accounting group such as âgroup_adminâ with a low priority factor, then you can submit the job in that accounting group and it will be at the top of the list when submitted. I think youâd want to use job transforms, requirements, and/or protected job attributes to make sure that users donât set that accounting group on their own jobs.

Subject: [External] [HTCondor-users] giving priority to a job already queued

Hi All,

I have a job in the queue that I would really like to run as soon as possible. 
Is there an easy way to tell condor to run this particular job next ? (I'm the administrator, not an impatient user.)
