change priority of jobs in the HTCondor queue
condor_prio -p priority | +value | -value [-n schedd_name] [username | ClusterId ]
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
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.
Change priority of all jobs in the queue
- -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.
condor_prio will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
