Build Status (Coverage report)

HTCondor pool manager for Google Cloud Platform.


Package installation

GCPM can be installed by pip:

$ pip install gcpm

Service file installation

To install as service, do:

  • Primary accounts

If primary accounts are set, jobs of non-primary accounts can run on test worker nodes.

If there are already max number of 1 core worker nodes and idle jobs of non-primary accounts are there, test worker node named <prefix&gt-test-1core-XXXX will be launched and only non-primary account jobs can run on it.

This able to run such a test job w/o waiting for finishing any normal jobs.

Such test worker nodes can be launched until total cores are smaller than max_core.

To use this function effectively, set total of max of each core to less than max_core.


  core: 1
  max: 10
  core: 8
  max:  2
max_core: 20
  - condor_primary

In this case, normal jobs can launch 10 1 core machines and 2 8 core machines, then 16 cores are used.

Even if there are a log of idle condor_primary's jobs, 1 core test jobs by other accounts can run: 4 jobs at most.
