Re: [HTCondor-users] Job NOT considered by the matchmaker


thanks for the answer.

the cluster is running condor 8.6.13. 
We have completed the migration from CREAM to CONDOR-CE, so we have 3 SCHEDDs at 8.8.10

After a long debug session, I have[I believe] evidence the issue is related with the SLOT_WEIGHT.
It seems multicore jobs submitted through the condor-ce are not evaluated in a weighted manner by the Negotiator.

We have scheduled a HTcondor upgrade

The message that the job has "not been considered by the matchmaker" is both misleading and unhelpful has been removed from our code base. Something else is causing the issue.

I have same jobs belonging to an AccountingGroup used to run multicore jobs which are stacking in Idle status.

condor_q -analyze reports the jos as ânot considered by the matchmakerâ
Actually in the Negotiator log file there are not messages reporting the AccountingGroup is going to be Negotiated

condor_userprio -cleanall does not resolve the issue.
Debug info have not helped

How can I understand whey the Negotiator is not evaluating those jobs ?

thanks in advance
