[condor-users] Submitting Variable Number of Jobs


What I'd like to do with Condor is following. I submit a numbre of jobs into a single cluster. Each time a job finishes a script gets executed. This script should be able to submit new jobs to this cluster if it decides to do so. This kind of scenario is usually encountered in parallel searches, e.g., GAs. For example, in GA I'd like to evaluate populations and then submit new runs based on the results of preceding ones. I don't want to submit these new jobs to new clusters because it gets messy to manage them. It is much better when they all are under one "hood".

Is this scenario possible with Condor? As far as I can see, at the moment DAGMan supports only fixed number of jobs. At the same time I don't think variable number of jobs goes against the principles behind Condor.

Kind Regards,
Alexander Klyubin
