|-h Help for this command.|
This command displays the earliest possible start time of a job. If the job already possesses a reservation, the start time of this reservation will be reported. If no such reservation exists, this command will determine the earliest time a reservation would be created assuming this job was highest priority. If this job does not have a reservation and it is not highest priority, the value of returned information may be limited.

Since the information provided by this job is only
highly accurate if the job is highest priority or if the job has a reservation,
sites wishing to make decisions based on this information may want to consider
using the RESERVATIONDEPTH
parameter to increase the number of priority based reservations.
This can be set so that most, or even all idle jobs receive priority reservations
and make the results of this command generally useful. The only caution
of this approach is that increasing the RESERVATIONDEPTH parameter more
tightly constrains the decisions of the scheduler and may resulting in
slightly lower system utilization (typically less than 8% reduction).
