condor_prio change priority of jobs in the HTCondor queue

Synopsis

condor_prio -p priority + value - value [ -n schedd_name ] cluster | cluster.process | username | -a

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

Description

condor_prio changes the priority of one or more jobs in the HTCondor queue. If the job identification is given by cluster.process , condor_prio attempts to change the priority of the single job with job ClassAd attributes ClusterId and ProcId . If described by cluster , condor_prio attempts to change the priority of all processes with the given ClusterId job ClassAd attribute. If username is specified, condor_prio attempts to change priority of all jobs belonging to that user. For -a , condor_prio attempts to change priority of all jobs in the queue.

The user must set a new priority with the -p option, or specify a priority adjustment. The priority of a job can be any integer, with higher numbers corresponding to greater priority. For adjustment of the current priority, + value increases the priority by the amount given with value . - value decreases the priority by the amount given with value .

Only the owner of a job or the super user can change the priority.

The priority changed by condor_prio is only used when comparing to the priority jobs owned by the same user and submitted from the same machine.

Options

-n schedd_name
Change priority of jobs queued at the specified condor_schedd in the local pool.
-pool pool_name -n schedd_name
Change priority of jobs queued at the specified condor_schedd in the specified pool.

Exit Status

condor_prio will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
