Hi Andreas,

thanks for pointing that out, I didn't see the wood for the trees (sorry, literal German translation).

However, the jobs are not submitted with any hard (or soft) runtime limit (no "hard resource_list: ..." at all for the small jobs). I checked again and the only setting for the jobs' duration is done within the queue configuration, see below. 
Where does SGE get the 70 seconds from?

Even more irritating, the reservation times, e.g. 1244?742740(=Thu, 11 Jun 2009 17:52:20 GMT) indeed seem to take the queues soft runtime limit of 10 days into account.

Does resource reservation only work, if the job has a fixed h_rt or s_rt value (if so which one?) provided with the -l option? Or must a corresponding complex be enforced? What exactly does one need to do to get resource reservation running?

Thanks again,
