This is how âpartitionableâ slots work. When a job comes in, a slot of the requested size is pulled out of the machineâs main slot and set up as a âdynamicâ slot, which lasts for the duration of the job (or the job cluster for the lease duration).
This is a more flexible approach than the previous âstaticâ slots configuration where machines were divided up into fixed-size slots.
Back when HTCondor was first developed, machines only had one CPU core, and the partitionable/dynamic approach handles allocating resources of machines with multiple CPU cores by treating each group of resources for a given job as a âmachine.â

When idle, a condor_status reports 48 nodes on my system, which is correct. When in use though it reports 96 nodes of which 48 are in use. Obviously the nodes are being fully utilized, so this is really no big deal - but I must have some configuration error somewhere. Any ideas where I should look?
