Scheduling jobs with heterogeneous resource requirements to a pool of computers with heterogeneous resources is a challenging task and Condor is beginning to tackle this in the most generic form. Integrating so-called partitionable slots (a batch resource able to be sliced along a variety of dimensions, from RAM to CPUs, to disks or even GPUs) with the rest of Condor's accounting and matchmaking mechanisms is a significant challenge. At BNL we began working closely with the Condor team to integrate Condor's Hierarchical Accounting Groups with partitionable slots in a consistent and correct manner. The results of that work are presented in this talk.
