Re: [Condor-users] Is there a way to give a job a descriptive name?

Thanks, that should do it.

It is easy to add custom attributes into your job ClassAd, and easy to 
customize the output of condor_q.

So you could get the above by having a submit file that looks something 

executable = foo.exe
+job_name = "Simulation of XXX"

(note the "+" syntax to add a custom attribute - and if the custom 
attribute is a string, you must include the double quotes)

and then something like

condor_q -format "%d." ClusterId -format "%d\t" ProcId -format "%s\n" 

perhaps make the above an alias or some such.

Is that good enough for what you want to do?
