Macintosh OS X

This section provides information specific to the Macintosh OS X port of HTCondor. The Macintosh port of HTCondor is more accurately a port of HTCondor to Darwin, the BSD layer of OS X. It is not well-integrated into the Macintosh environment beyond that.

HTCondor on the Macintosh has a few shortcomings:

  • Users connected to the Macintosh via ssh are not noticed for console activity.

  • The memory size of threaded programs is reported incorrectly.

  • No Macintosh-based installer is provided.

  • The example start up scripts do not follow Macintosh conventions.
