Re: [HTCondor-users] A couple of questions regarding running jobs with docker containers (Q2)


This hostname setting is hardcoded into HTCondor. Nothing bad will happen if you change it. The idea was (especially for interactive uses), to remind users that they were inside a container, so they wouldn't assume that the host's OS was the same as the contained OS.

and here is the second question.

I have noticed that one of the input options for the "docker create"
command is like this

       --hostname <user>-<clusterid>.<procid>-<real_hostname>

So they look like

      --hostname neo-666.0-host123.matrix.net

Is this something hardcoded in HTCondor, or part of our site's configuration?
If it is a HTCondor thing, would something bad happen if we replace it
by just the actual hostname?
