    [ The following text is in the "iso-8859-1" character set. ]
    [ Your display is set for the "ISO-8859-10" character set.  ]
    [ Some special characters may be displayed incorrectly. ]

An array job won't work;

  "Each job may request different resources."

You can set something with -A, or in the job context with -sc.  Neither make it easy
to see what current jobs are in the queue.

Personally, I'd stick with job names.

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").
