condor_ prio

change priority of jobs in the condor queue

Synopsis

condor_ prio [-p priority] [+ | - value] [-n schedd_name] [-pool pool_name] cluster | cluster.process | username | -a

Description

condor_ prio changes the priority of one or more jobs in the condor queue. If a cluster_id and a process_id are both specified, condor_ prio attempts to change the priority of the specified process. If a cluster_id is specified without a process_id, condor_ prio attempts to change priority for all processes belonging to the specified cluster. If a username is specified, condor_ prio attempts to change priority of all jobs belonging to that user. If the -a flag is set, condor_ prio attempts to change priority of all jobs in the condor queue. The user must specify a priority adjustment or new priority. If the -p option is specified, the priority of the job(s) are set to the next argument. The user can also adjust the priority by supplying a + or - immediately followed by a digit. The priority of a job can be any integer, with higher numbers corresponding to greater priority. Only the owner of a job or the super user can change the priority for it.

The priority changed by condor_ prio is only compared to the priority of other jobs owned by the same user and submitted from the same machine. See the "Condor Users and Administrators Manual" for further details on Condor's priority scheme.
