Hi, I have been trying to run job(s) for all the day on Galaxy and they just hang with the "waiting to run" status. I did not have other jobs queued and form my admin log I found the error:

A few more details will help to troubleshoot the problem.

  • Are you running the most current release of Galaxy? Version 17.09?
  • What was the source? Github or ?
  • Have any advanced admin changes been made? (A cluster is in use, etc)
  • Have jobs ever run successfully or are these the first jobs to be run?
  • Do all tools stall at the queued stage or just some? Have you checked to make certain the tools and dependencies are installed correctly and completely?

Hi, thanks for your answer!

I'm running my own instance of Galaxy on Amazon web Services EC2, managed by CloudMan (the most current release I can select is 17.05). I found that error message in the Galaxy log file in the CloudMan Admin panel. The jobs run successfully until two days ago, I hadn't similar problem before. Actually I'm trying to run FastQC, but I also made some tests with other tools (Trim Galore, Text manipulation... ). The tools I'm using and dependencies seems to be installed correctly and completely.

Thanks again

All the jobs are running successfully now, after I simply launched an instance with more memory (m4.2xlarge instead of m4.xlarge). The "Error" is still present in the log file, but it seems to not affect the jobs!
