Job names are important for the LSF scheduler (when searching for particular jobs, working with job dependencies, etc.). We therefore ask to specify meaningful and preferably unique job names.

In addition we adjust job names as of March, 24th, 2015:

Our policy is:

  • Job names should not contain whitespace or semicolons. In this case the job name will be truncated to the first part of the original job name, taking whitespace and semicolons as delimiters.
  • Missing jobnames or insanly long ones get a jobname consisting of $USER_$RANDOMSTRING. Here, $RANDOMSTRING, obviously will be a random string, 20 characters long.
