We are using SGE cluster with our galaxy install. We have specified resource 
and run-time limits for certain tools using tool specific drmaa URL 
configuration, e.g.:  
- run-time (h_rt, s_rt) 
- memory (vf, h_vmem).

This helps scheduler in submitting jobs to an appropriate node and also prevent 
node from crashing because of excessive memory consumption. However, sometimes 
a job needs more resources and/or run-time than specified in the drmaa URL 
configuration. In such cases SGE kills particular job and we get email 
notification with appropriate job summary. However, the galaxy web interface 
doesn't show any error for such failures. The job table doesn't contain any 
related state/info as well. The jobs are shown in green-boxes meaning they 
completed without any failure. In reality these jobs have been killed/aborted 
by the scheduler. This is really confusing as there is inconsistency between 
job status indicated by the galaxy and SGE/drmaa. Has anyone else experienced 
and/or addressed this issue? Any comments or suggestions will be really
