Description Robert Rati 2008-11-21 17:56:36 EST
Description of problem:
The condor manual at http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/manual/v7.1/3_12Setting_Up.html#SECTION004127000000000000000

States that "The four attribute names are case insensitive when defining slot types.", however putting:

SLOT_TYPE_1 = CPUS=100%,DISK=100%,SWAP=100%

in condor's configuration file causes the startd to error with the message (in StartLog):

Unknown attribute "CPU=100%" in slot type 1

Changing the CPU to cpu causes a similar complaint about DISK.  setting them all to lowercase solves the issue.

Comment 1 Robert Rati 2009-01-12 09:13:13 EST
Slot type definitions can now be lower case.  The startd wasn't being case insensitive when it was checking the configuration files.  Added tolower() in switch statement for slot type definitions.
Comment 2 Jan Sarenik 2009-02-12 04:09:14 EST
Excuse me, but I am unable to find a version of Condor
which would produce any log complaint about the mentioned
line. Should I use any special debugging option to catch it?

I have tried these versions:
  condor-7.0.4-4.el5.i386 (from MRG 1.0.1)
Comment 3 Robert Rati 2009-02-12 13:30:59 EST
This was run into when testing dynamic provisioning.  If you add the following to the condor config file then you should see an error in StartLog:

SLOT_TYPE_1 = CPUS=100%,DISK=100%,SWAP=100%
Comment 4 Jan Sarenik 2009-02-13 10:03:26 EST
Can you please also write the version number on which you
experienced the bug, please?

From the date of message you wrote about adding tolower()
I guess the bug should be present in condor <= 7.2.0-3
Is this assumption right?
Comment 5 Jan Sarenik 2009-02-13 10:09:27 EST
verified on condor-7.2.2-0.1.el5
reproduced on condor-7.1.4-0.3.el5
