In qmon, I selected "Queue control", then in the "Cluster Queues" tab
I selected "all.q" and clicked on the "Modify" button. That brings up
a "Modify all.q" window; I selected the "Checkpointing" tab. That tab
lists MinCpuTime=00:05:00, and lists "condor" under "Available
Checkpoint Objects" and also lists "condor" under "Referenced
So, I think that I have associated the checkpointing interface with all.q

When a place gets crowded enough to require ID's, social collapse is not
far away. It is time to go elsewhere. The best thing about space travel
is that it made it possible to go elsewhere.
