Description

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

The user must set a new priority with the -poption, 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, + valueincreases the priority by the amount given with value. - valuedecreases 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_priois only used when comparing to the priority jobs owned by the same user and submitted from the same machine.
