• Version 4.0 and earlier: mastertimelimit variable not available.
  • Version 5.0.1 and later: mastertimelimit variable available.

Integer, modifiable

The mastertimelimit variable specifies a time limit, in seconds, between pbmasterd and pblocald, for a task request. If the job does not finish within the specified number of seconds, it is terminated.

mastertimelimit is similar to mastertimeout, but it is based on total time rather than idle time.

mastertimelimit is similar to runtimelimit, from the pbmasterd point of view, and is useful only when there is no log server.

The mastertimelimit variable is not honored in local mode.

mastertimelimit = number;
  • number: Enable time limit checking.
  • 0: Disable time limit checking. This value is the default.
mastertimelimit = 3600;
