I'm using htcondor 7.0, I submit up to 100 Java jobs in the same cluster at once, and I need to know the process number in the Java code. What's the best way of doing this?
So far all I can think of is transferring a file with the process number in the name and getting the code to find and parse the number out of this file name, but this seems like quite a kludge. Maybe it's available in an environment variable?
I want the process number so that a random number generator can be initialised with the same seed if it has the same process number across clusters of jobs.
