[GE users] How to identify a set of jobs as being from the same run?

There is an argument to qsub ("-A") maybe? That lets you pass arbitrary 
information that does nothing but end up in the accounting log. The 
manpage/docs should have this. Another common approach is to use the 
project feature for this as it also ends up in the logs.

Another option is to submit a single job array containing all the 
thousands of tasks. Then you'd have a single job, single job ID and a 
single job name ("-N").
