I started running the FASTQ groomer tool on about 10 datasets in parallel, 2 days ago.

All of the jobs ran fine in about half an hour except one that is still running. Is this normal or is there a problem with this specific file?

Thanks for your help!

Has the Groomer job completed by now? If not, then there is a problem. 3 GB is not very large when working on Were you able to run other tools on this dataset, such as "FastQC"? This would be a simple test and could also provide some details about the dataset contents. 

Please send an update and if needed we can examine the dataset in your history, Thanks, Jen, Galaxy team
