Long Running Jobs Monitor

By Gregory Ferdinandsen,

This script should be executed from the SQL Server Agent on a recurring basis (I run it hourly).  The script will monitor jobs and alert for jobs that run over the specified threshold (Defaults to 24 hours).

By default, I have excluded the two Management Datawarehouse Jobs that strt running when the server is brought online/MDW starts to collect data.  You may exclude upto 5 other jobs that you know exceed the threshold.
