Hello everyone,

I have another question ;)

Does anyone know, why per default the number of array elements is 
limited to 1000?

We have one user, who would like to have 100k array elements!

What is more difficult for the scheduler, one array job with 100k 
elements or 100k non-array jobs?

Where did you set the limit? Do your users use array jobs at all?
