Yes, I knew about this. I guess I should be a bit more specific about my use case. I'd like to be able to anticipate when a job is going to end. If a user requested s_rt or h_rt then that is a good indicator in the qstat output. However, if they didn't explicitly request a time then the default queue limit applies and that's not stated anywhere in the job description.

Is there a simple way of anticipating the time the job is expected to terminate, regardless of whether or not the user requested the s_rt or h_rt complexes?
