Be aware: if you are doing an index rebuild, killing the job would cause a large rollback operation, which is fairly costly within sql server. A reorg of the index won't cause this rollback. Just something to keep in mind if you are trying to dynamically kill jobs.

schedule an additional job which executes a "sp_stop_job" , see [link text][1] Much better: use the index maintenance script from Ola Hallengren ([link text][2]) . With this script you can configure the max runtime. [1]: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms182793.aspx [2]: http://ola.hallengren.com
