Hi everyone,

Is there a way to impose a hard time limit on a job even though the queue where it runs is configured to give :

s_rt                  720:00:00
h_rt                  720:00:00

The reason for this is that I have certain jobs that need to run under 4 hours for instance, and if they run over 4 hours they got stuck, will never finish and need to be killed.

The main problem is that there are thousands of those jobs each day and its not so easy to find them manually.
