If you want a single Condor job to run on your SMP machines regardless of
what's happening on that machine (high load, user logged in), you can just
set NUM_VIRTUAL_MACHINES = 1 and START = True. Or you can customize the
START expression to consider only the things you want (don't run jobs if
the load is too high, but ignore whether someone is sitting in front of
the machine). You'll also want to tweak the other startd policy
expressions appropriately.
