OpenPBS trick: maximum cpu time

In OpenPBS, it is a good rule to set the default resource allocations of the execution queues to the same value of the maximum resource allocations. For example, in qmgr:

set queue myqueue resources_max.cput = 72:00:00
set queue myqueue resources_min.cput = 00:00:01
set queue myqueue resources_default.cput = 72:00:00

otherwise the default value is considered as the maximum for a given job that does not request more via something like qsub -l cput=…, and the job will be killed when it reaches the default value (of time, memory, etc.)
