Description of problem:
Certain job invocations could take too long and we want these to time out.
It would be nice if we could provide a default time out in the job template, and offer an option to override that timeout in the job invocation.
The timeout timer will start as soon as the job invocation starts, no need to actually measure the execution time on the client.
What is the expected behaviour when the timeout happens? Killing the job?

And also give reason why timed out (if possible)
