Request to define a timeout setting for a particular job or jobstep.
Once in a while a job or jobstep is submitted to the IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services (C&DS) Server and it will either never finish or will run for a very long time. In either case it will take up resources from the server. It would be nice to have the ability to impose a time out threshold to this job or job step. This way the job will not run for ever and other users will be able to execute their jobs.
Resolving the problem
An Enhancement Request has been submitted to the C&DS Product Management team for consideration.
