Within the HEPiX virtualization group and the WLCG MJF Task Force, a mechanism has been developed which provides access to detailed information about the current host and the current job to the job itself. This allows user payloads to access meta information, independent of the current batch system or virtual machine model. This information includes the performance of the node and the remaining run time for the current job.
