It's possible for a Condor job to take a few minutes to start up;
but assuming that it's still hanging around in idle, there are a
number of things to try.
The best summary of debugging I know of is here:
- The job is actually starting, but is immediately failing (say,
because the executable isn't readable). The user log,
ShadowLog, and StarterLog will provide details.
- The machine isn't available to run the job. Does
"condor_status" report the machine as "Owner"? If so, the
machine is in use by the Owner. Quick fix: configure the
machine to always run jobs:
- The job isn't allowed to run (condor_q -analyze is the first
- A weird, relatively rare bug: Condor will occasionally decide
that a pool with only one machine has no available machines.
Crude workaround: NUM_CPUS=2, condor_restart. If you're
actually hitting this one, please let us know.
