What is a Jobclass? (NetworkComputer)

A jobclass is a hook for a callback function written in tcl. The callback function is executed before the job gets scheduled. It allows you to specify job parameters, such as reosurces and jobqueue, which otherwise would have to be specified on the command line.
 
Since it is regular tcl, regular tcl commands can be used to understand what variables are exposed. To learn more, run the following command:

puts [info vars]

Many job related parameters are stored in an array VOV_JOB_DESC. To learn more, run the following command:

puts [array names VOV_JOB_DESC]
