Re: [HTCondor-users] Machine allocation - unused machines


Thank you for the quick response.

I was unaware of this macro. As far as I could see, there was no mention of that macro in any of my config-files. I am running version 8.6.

I tried setting that macro to false on my negotiator, so we'll see what happens.

I think this should be the domain of NEGOTIATOR_DEPTH_FIRST[1] also 
briefly discussed in the wiki[2].

However, I wonder why the non-default depth first seems to be in effect 
at your pool.
