It was running the job normal, but could not detect a successful end, although BOINC did not remark the task as a computation error:

BOINC message: LHC@home 30 Nov 16:06:36 Computation for task LHCb_6564_1480502539.648605_0 finished

Maybe Cinzia can look for a returned status for LHCb job 28329.

There have been a few issues with the LHCb job submission today. We are working to resolve them.

LHCb jobs should be working again.

This one was running fine: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=109059539

I don't yet fully understand the job processing setup, but it looks like the Theory simulation at first.
Running several jobs until 12 hours elapsed time is over, but each job seems to may run 10 sub-jobs.
I could not catch the VM-logs, because it was returned before I wake up.

This is correct. LHCb are using pilot jobs. We still need to make some improvements to the logging.

Is there a special reason why a LHCb task is first killed after 36 hours and not like Theory after 18 hours?

I was having a different issue.

My PC's screens would go blank and essentially be w/o signal and the PC would stop responding to any inputs. I had to hard power cycle the PC.
I did this 3 times before all of these errored out.

I then was able to finish the ATLAS units that were constantly waiting for memory when other WU's were in queue. That is for the ATLAS pages.
Let's crunch for our future.

The LHCb jobs can be longer.
