0.0.2 Job limits

Job limits on Endeavour are more flexible than on Discovery and can be configured on a partition basis, but we still must enforce time limits for system maintenance purposes.

Default run time if no run time is specified: 1 hour
Maximum run time: 14 days
Maximum number of jobs or job steps (running or pending): 3,000

More information on Endeavour jobs can be found in the Running Jobs user guide.
