Re: [HTCondor-users] Is a JobStatus==5 check required in a periodic_release expression?


Between Christina and myself, we can't think of anything obvious that would make dropping the JobStatus == 5 clause from the periodic_release _expression_ problematic, as doing "condor_release" on non-held jobs should result in no change. Curious what different behavior you saw if you're able to share!

Thanks, Jason, for the link to that tutorial!

A question cropped up from slide 103, which perhaps Kristina can answer - is it necessary to check to confirm if the JobStatus as held in the periodic_release _expression_? I don't usually do it, since I figure the fact that PeriodicRelease is true doesn't matter unless the job is already held since the "should I periodic release" question is moot if the job isn't held,  but I have a peculiar unexplained situation from a couple of weeks ago that's got me wondering.
