[Workload Scheduling Policy][WellsFargo]Task redundant scheduling on timeout

Please advise how to implement the following functions:

1, have task timeout for 500 seconds.
2, if a task run more than 500 seconds, reschedule the task on a new
engine, but in the mean time, keep the original task running
3, for the original task running, and the newly re-scheduled task
running, whichever comes back first, send back to the client
4, for the second task run to complete, simply discard that task result
(or even cancel the second run upon receiving the result from first run)

    .The solution with existing function, can be using application service control code to force the task rerun if it has been running for longer than expected (or any other instances). We do recognize the potential value of the required "redundant scheduling" of a task, however there is no short or mid term plan to include this in production as a common required case.

    We have put this feature request into the Symphony backlog for consideration in a future release. We agree there is value in providing this functionality as part of the product offering in the future.
