Re: [HTCondor-users] is it Condor honoring /etc/security/limits.conf ?

Thanks Greg, I will try your suggestions.

If you are running HTCondor starting from init/systemd as root, by default it will use cgroups to limit the amount of cpu used by processes in various job. Otherwise, there is a setting, JOB_RENICE_INCREMENT which can set the nice'ness of processes in a job on a worker node.

We don't have a way to set the per-file limits, but if you are more interested in limiting the total size of all the files a given job creates,

HTCondor can prevent a job from using more total disk space than requested, see this link for details:
