I am trying to use RNA STAR but I have been waiting for hours and it is still queued, no sign of a start. Any problem with it?

Please leave jobs queued and avoid deleting/restarting. If you rerun, any new job is placed back at the end of the queue, extending wait time.

What I checked (so that you'll know what to check next time a job is seems queued for a bit longer than usual):

  • Check if all of the inputs are in a success (green) state, actually contain content, and do not have metadata warnings. Your data inputs are fine.
  • Count up how many larger jobs were started/queued concurrently. You started several mapping jobs up, a batch ran through, the others were queued, more will eventually run and complete, etcetera. Galaxy Main's resources are designed to be equally distributed among all users, meaning: jobs are run as server resources become available within the concurrency limits per account.

Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team

Jen: Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, as it was taking too long, I deleted the file and as it was still running, I undeleted it. Must have lost out several positions in the Q. Now I will wait. Meanwhile I have opened an AWS account. I still do not know howto use it and will attempt to use it and download Galaxy tools in it, when I get more time to learn the hows.

Thanks again With Best Regards Vasudevan
