> Hello,
> We're running a large SGE 6.0u8 installation (hundreds of nodes).
> Recently a lot of users started asking for a timeout feature. That is,
> submit a job and make sure that it returned after certain period of
> time. Or submit a job and make sure that the submission command
> returns within a specified timeout if it cannot be executed right
> away. Something like:
> # returns in 10 minutes (timeout)
> $ qsub -to 600 some_job 
> # qrsh returns an error message if the job hasn't been scheduled to
> run in 5 minutes (pending timeout)
> $ qrsh -now no -pt 300 some_job 
> I've tried to find something relevant in the docs but could not. Could
> someone please enlighten me? Maybe, if this is not possible now, it
> will be possible in some further releases?
> Thanks,
