Specifies the amount of time before a job control action occurs that a job warning action is to be taken.




bsub -wt '[hour:]minute'


Job action warning time is not normalized.

A job action warning time must be specified with a job warning action in order for job warning to take effect.

The warning time specified by the bsub -wt option overrides JOB_ACTION_WARNING_TIME in the queue. JOB_ACTION_WARNING_TIME is used as the default when no command line option is specified.


The following specifies that 2 minutes before the job reaches its runtime limit, an URG signal is sent to the job:

bsub -W 60 -wt '2' -wa 'URG' myjob
