Killing a Runaway Job


Jobs that go into a Runaway Status (ones that have Executed too long) can be handled through the Job Properties and Notify Options section.

An Elapsed Time can be entered with the value of Windows System Time, or the Average Percentage of Completion can be selected. From here, an Action can be taken, such as Cancelling with any form of Completion Severity, or simply Sending a Notification to allow the Job to continue executing.

In the example below, the Job is configured to send a notification if the Job takes 5 hours, or 500% of its normal execution time.
