By default, all non-interactive jobs have a wallclock limit of 30 minutes - if you need to submit longer jobs, you will need to write a qsub script (at present our q-utilities do not support increasing wallclock limits), see page on Advanced qsub.

By default, all interactive jobs that are submitted through the NX interface are scheduled through the interactive queue, and all other jobs, submitted through the q-utilities or through a command-line qsub submission are submitted to the  regular queue. In order to submit to any of the other queues, assuming you have access rights, you need to specify

-q (queue name)

on the qsub command line, e.g.

qsub -q faculty myjob.qsub

or embed it into the qsub script as

#PBS -q (queue name)
