I wasn't aware of that option, but I think that's a side issue that's not relevant to the problem I'm trying to solve.

No, if they did this their jobs wouldn't run at all because they wouldn't fit before the service period.

Similar jobs currently in the queue report things like:

# qstat -j 59508 | grep h_rt
hard resource_list:         h_rt=388800

and for finished ones I can see from the qacct -j output:

qsub_time    Wed Mar  3 16:19:34 2010
start_time   Fri Mar  5 02:20:44 2010
end_time     Tue Mar  9 14:20:45 2010

OK, so that's 112 hours rather than 108 but you can these limits are being correctly set and applied.
