I don't have any prior experience with checkpointing. I simply
searched around, and Condor seemed to be the easiest and most
straightforward to setup.
If you have any experience or recommendations wrt other checkpointing
methods, I would be very interested in your perspective.
My requirements are pretty straightforward. I have a set of jobs to
run. I want to be able to assign priorities within the set of my jobs
(no need to prioritize my jobs with respect to other users' jobs).
Under certain conditions, I need to re-prioritize my jobs. When that
happens, if a lower priority job is running, I would like to
checkpoint it, remove it from running, and put it back in the queue.
My approach so far has been to try using Condor and assign priorities
by changing -js job share. If there is a better way, I'd love to hear
