Setting up your batch environment

Before you submit any programs for batch processing, perform the following:

Create a directory in which to submit your batch processing, and then change to that directory.

Make sure that you set permission to enable the Condor software to read from and write to the directory and its contents.

For example, type the following:

> mkdir condor
> cd condor

You can and request that a project directory be set up for you to use for batch processing. If you perform you batch processing within your home directory, the space used for your data and program files can consume much of your allotted resources.
