Hi Howard,
when you say analyze job you mean the auto task schedule for default stats gather routine or is it custom job?. either ways there are two controls available.

control 1: you could set a fixed window for the job. the default window is 4 hours on weekdays and 6 hours on saturday and 20 hours on sunday. this can be changed if you want. if it is a custom job, developers could create a own window with a duration and would be killed if it exceeds the window.IIRC there is an option to say auto kill if it exceeds the duration when the job is created

control2: you could stop the running job using stop_job with force option or if you want, you could disable the job before it is in run state.. stop job requires manage scheduler privilege.

hope it helps

best regards
