Hi Jose,

Yes, technically a "personal condor" is a single-node condor pool
run by a non-root user, but we've been guilty of misusing it to mean
a single-node condor pool in general.

Case in point: the following in your condor config will give you a
single-node condor:

  use role: personal

this currently expands to


Alternatively, if you're using an RPM-based install, you can yum
install "minicondor" which will give you a config file containing
that plus some performance tuning and making it only listen on the
local interface.

Brian/someone, do you know if it's possible to hook up a CE to
a minicondor?
