Requesting resources with an HTCondor job

HTCondor enables jobs to specify the minimum size of various machine resources are required to support your job through the following submit commands:

  • request_disk
  • request_memory

In general with HTCondor these are optional, with the defaults set according to the local administrator's chosen policy. For IGWN workflows, in order to minimise failures because jobs are matched with unsufficient resources, specifying these commands will become mandatory.
