Hi Ryan,

This is a fairly complex problem because the length of the run depends most
often on input size, job algorithms, and computational capacity all of
which are quite difficult to estimate.
We have discussed it before and one of the ways to approach this is to
gather statistics from as many jobs as possible and then provide the user
with some estimates based on this data on similar jobs to theirs.

For the way to gather the data please see
https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/pull/2455 from Eric Rasche. With
the data (or at least data format) we can start working on an algorithm
that would make a guess on a new job length.

However, there are many other approaches to this problem.

Thanks,

Martin
