How can I make my batch submission track iteration number?

To track iteration number for batch submissions, use one of the following:

  • Add --args '$(Process)' to the Arguments line of your Condor submit file. This passes to the R process the process number of the R run, which progresses from 0 to one less than the number of runs.
  • Capture the argument in a variable in your R code by entering the following line: run <- commandArgs(TRUE). The R object run contains the run number. You then can use this object to construct appropriate output file names for your job.
