Prevent too many resubmits of a workflow

Is there a config I can set to avoid too many (manual) re-submits of a workflow.

We had a situation wherein a user resubmitted a workflow many times resulting in the server getting clogged up. This stopping everybody else's workflow from being processed.

 

Thanks

What do you mean with re-submit?:

1- They're uploading a new version of the same workflow (so you see multiple versions if you click on the workflow in the gallery);

2- They're uploading the same workflow but not overwriting the old version (having multiple workflows on the gallery with the same name);

 

What caused our server to be really angry at us was when we (back in the day haha) just deleted a workflow while it was running it, it basically causes a ghost job on the server that can't be cancelled. 

 

Greetings,

@Sebastiaandb, 

By ReSubmits I mean when a user runs a workflow.... and while it's running, either they re-run it or another user runs the same workflow.

The server had 2 CPUs and these re-submitted workflows got queued up resulting in all other users' workflows also getting clogged up in queue.
