Condor Batch Scheduler


Direct reads/writes to your home directory on shell.tier3 (NFS mounted to the worker nodes) can cause performance problems.

The options for telling condor to copy files into and out of your job are:

  • Should_Transfer_Files = YES
  • Transfer_Input_Files = file1, file2
  • WhenToTransferOutput = ON_EXIT

Condor will hold your job when a problem occurs. Held jobs remain in the queue, waiting for user intervention. Once the problem is resolved, use condor_release to continue running the job.
