Intervention system for runaway jobs

By Johan Bijnens,

Some of my developers had created jobs that executed VB applications that never ended.
Aparently they could not figure out when, why and what was going wrong. They could not repro the situation.
Now I've created this litle system so the users can assign max elaps times for their jobs. These jobs will then be intercepted and interrupted with brute force sp_stopjob.

As always with this kind of stuff : don't use it if there's no explicit reason to use it. If you have to use it, always test it before you put it in a production environment.
