Issue:
AutoSys is reporting min run alarms with negative 1 million seconds reported as the run time.  
Example:
Job Name: job123
Alarm Type: MINRUNALARM
Alarm Message: Runtime = -1,536,295,079 secs,  Min Run Time = 2 Mins
Time of Alarm: 07-SEP-18 12.38.32.000000 AM UTC

 
Resolution:
Follow up with the database and system administrators to confirm the times of the databases and system.
Oddities with run times and processing times can happen if the time of the systems are not 100% in sync with one another.
Often a system's time has drifted or been reset via some NTP process.
Once the system's times are 100% in sync with one another restart the AE processes.
