Truncated outputs retained

bhaasbhaas Broad InstituteMember, Broadie


In an earlier run from last week, totaling about 1k jobs, about 10% of these were reported to have been successfully completed, but when I look at the result files that were retained as products of the workflow, they appear to be truncated.

Does firecloud ensure that the files that are retained as outputs match up perfectly with the originals being transferred, such as using md5sums or similar?

    Thanks. I was referring to products of my workflow being truncated. It's bizarre. I'll explore it further in subsequent runs.

    Are the truncated products in workflows that were completed successfully?

    Sorry for not responding earlier. Yes, these were successfully completed workflows. I haven't encountered this problem again, though... I'll keep an eye out for it and comment again if it continues to occur.
