      Condor slow to take your jobs? 20m

      we have two interactive hosts for sphenix - sphnx01 and sphnx02 .
      They are identical to the other interactive nodes but we can fine tune this (within limits - 100GB jobs won't run) .

      The main reason for their existence is that it depends on the submission machine into which queue the jobs get submitted. Jobs submitted from these machines go into the sphenix condor queue which has its own allocation of condor slots.

      There seems to be an issue with condor with large memory allocation which prevents sphenix jobs to start quickly. They do start but I have seen delays of 24 hours. Since this is a separate queue queue we might be able to do something about that on the queue level (at least there will be no low memory phenix jobs out-competing the sphenix jobs).

      Please give this a shot, lets see how this goes, especially in terms of jobs starting with a reasonable waiting period
