pbs_mom can detect a variety of overlimit conditions, and initiate the
process of killing off the job.
pbs_server, itself, never initiates such things.
The scheduler, specifically maui and moab, can 'qdel' a job for whatever
Once a qdel is sent to pbs_server, it instructions pbs_mom to SIGTERM
all processes, and then if the job hasn't exited within kill_delay
seconds, instructions pbs_mom to SIGKILL processes. And if the
"job_nanny" server attribute is enabled, it will continue to send
SIGKILLs as long as the job hasn't exited.
