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?
