Another possibility would be to write out the first one exactly as you find yourself actually playing it. You might discover that you play it somewhat the same way each time even if it is irregular.Then "sim." over a gliss. line for the others.
The all three examples are written exactly as they would be performed.

Basically, the violinist plays 1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2.... together with gliss..
"sim." is really a good idea, and that would be actually applied for fingering 1-2. I think the best is to have written it every time, the "sim." information next to "1 2".

As a non-vioinist, but one contemplating the writing of a violin concerto, I don't think I'd even write quite as high as no 2 (the B a minor 3rd below that D might be my notional highest), so it's interesting to see a violinist writing way higher.
Tavener has written in his Protecting Veil a3 for cello (4th line above in :t ), which would be just minor third down from the highest note in my example. I know it is easier to be so high on the cello than on violin, but a bit extravaganza is welcomed here.

I meant with exact pitches the first time. But this may be completely contrary to your intention.

I was also stunned by those high notes!
