Actual Time here is 18:58:00 in Germany.

The VM shows the last action at 13:28:27:



Is it dead ?

Will it recover itself ?

Instead of aborting it, any chance to finish it successfull ? (I'm with the actual race and would like to save my credits)

The VM should stop and BOINC-task should be reported after the job running at 12 hours elapsed time has finished.

If this doesn't happen, the task will be killed gracefully (incl. credits) after 18 hours avoiding tasks will run forever.

The initial 12 hours sometimes doesn't work. One reason could be that the VM itself has rebooted. The initial 12 hours count will restart then.

Okay, for the Race my credits are safe :-)

But in reality, the VM is dead and could be killed
