We run on a Windows-only pool and implement suspension of jobs on busy
machines, which is a lot better than having them killed. We put a
limit on the total suspend time; it seems to work well since most
people use their computer for several minutes, then do something else,
come back...the suspended jobs can eke out enough time during the day,
then run nearly 100% at night.
