Anyway the 'job priority' is on a per-user-base and meant as a tool for users to prioritize jobs as parts of their transmision.
It does not have any effect on absolut priority between different users (that's what userprio is used for) it only (kind of) sorts the jobs inside ones batch of submitted jobs therefore it defaults to zero - which means nor priorities inbetween jobs.
Christoph is, of course, correct here.Â Something that is confusing
about HTCondor is that we informally call the schedd a "queue", or that
it holds a "queue" of jobs, but HTCondor does NOT, in a mathematical
sense, schedule in a strict queue, for a number of reasons.Â Jobs that
worker nodes prefer may "jump the queue", jobs that match now will start
running before larger jobs that may only match on machines that are
currently busy, etc.
