Handling of terminated instance VMs on Google Cloud

Hi, I was wondering if someone could speak to Cromwell's handling of VMs that it's started to run a task on Google Cloud Platform. I started a very simple workflow with a single task (Cromwell instantiates a Compute Engine VM to run this task) and then I deleted the instance about 10 minutes later expecting Cromwell to detect that the instance it started was no longer available. However, Cromwell appears to still be waiting for the task to finish - why doesn't it know that the instance is gone?

  • Hi ChrisL, thanks for the insight. I believe I left the monitoring script running for longer than 10 minutes but perhaps not an hour. I'll try again once I get through some other tasks and update this thread.
