Increase the number of Gridmanagers in the Factory
In the pre 3.5 Factory, there was at least one Gridmanager per user.
With the new single-user Factory we may end up with a single Gridmanager for the whole Factory.
Condor by default has for each unix account a single gridmanager.
This is controlled by an expression that can be set in condor config: gridmanager_selection_expr - setting, knob for the schedd
A single Gridmanager could become a bottleneck when sending many jobs and it there are problems w/ an Entry or a type of Entries (e.g. w/ CREAM submission), then the whole Factory is subject to the problem.
Multiple Gridmanagers could help inproving scalability on the submit host.
But if there are multiple gridmanagers sent to the same Entry (remote site), then the benefit of communicating w/ a single Gridmanager start to drop.
- to have 1 gridmanager per site
- to have one Gridmanager per Grid type
This is done already in the condor configuration of some Factories, maybe should be included in the GWMS configuration.
