Hello. I submitted a job on Galaxy using Bowtie2 to map DNAseq reads onto sacCer3 reference genome 6pm (UTC) today and it is still waiting in queue. Is this what I should expect since I've been using Galaxy these days, or due to other reasons? Thanks!
When working at https://usegalaxy.org, jobs can queue up to 24 hrs during the busiest times yet most will start up quicker. Factors include the job/tool type, how busy the clusters are, and how many jobs are launched at the same time.
You are still in the normal queue time frame for a mapping job (~ 4 1/2 hrs so far). Leave the job queued and avoid deleting/restarting as that just extends the wait time (job is added back at the end of the queue).
