[HTCondor-users] Help needed with a time of day policy


I've been through chapter 3.5 of the manual a few times and still can't quite figure out how to achieve the following:

I'd like jobs to only run after office hours on some systems.

If there is a job already running then it should be suspended if its had more than a certain amount of CPU time so that it can resume later and this time is not wasted, but killed if its only had a small amount of CPU time so that it can try to run again (or resume, if checkpointable) somewhere else.

Section looks like a good start, but I'm a bit lost in the maze of START, *SUSPEND, *VACATE, PREEMPT and CONTINUE possibilities.

Can someone advise please?
