job sequence number

Sometimes the sequence number increases by 1 and sometimes by large numbers like 100,000. How do I set the sequence number increment?

Do you mean a column defined with GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY?
This is the the way it is implemented in TD, it's not one sequence, it's a parallel sequence. Each AMP/PE reserverves a batch of 100,000 numbers and assignes them sequentially. The batch size can only be modified on a system level, but will never be set to 1.
If you need sequential values without gaps you should do it within SQL using ROW_NUMBER.
