Jobs stuck in "Running"

Hi Firecloud,

Many of the jobs I have run seem to be stuck in a state of "Running" but when I check the Google bucket output, there is only an exec.sh file, and they have been running for many hours. Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

Thank you,

    How long do you expect a workflow like this to run? Have you successfully run this workflow before on FireCloud?

    I'd like to take a look at your submission there. Could you share the workspace with [email protected] and give the name of the workspace as well as any submission and workflow ids involved.

    Hi Kate -- it seems the jobs have all started and are back on track.

    I had run this task before on this cohort and it normally takes 30 minutes.

    Actually, when checking the task again, it appears the status was actually "Waiting for Quota", although it read as "Running" before.

    If you're still interested, the workspace is broad-firecloud-rocco/Getz_Rocco_OPSCC and submission id is 23c0b971-026d-46e8-b279-2462858b55c0. You should have access.
