There's an outstanding feature request for that:


While waiting on that, we've taken to injecting it into the job's environment ourselves in the Lua submit filter.

    I had hoped it was one of the SLURM variables, but apparently not.
    Is there an easy way outside doing an 'squeue' or 'scontrol' call from 
    the job to find out the max time of itself?
    I hate doing RPC calls as too many of them can tip a system over.
