I don't think I've gotten a WU from either to complete or validate in weeks

CMS and Theory seem to have no prob;ems at all

LHCb has no work to that is why they fail.

Atlas is working about 50%, but the person responseable is on holiday.

There are some suspect entries in your logfiles.

https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=136579511
2017-04-21 07:18:06 (11484): Setting Memory Size for VM. (4000MB)
2017-04-21 07:18:06 (11484): Setting CPU Count for VM. (2)

4000 MB are not enough to run a 2-core VM.
I guess you use a app_config.xml as the project would set that parameter to at least 4200 MB.
Depending on the running tasks 4200 MB could also be not enough so I suggest to set it to 4600-5000 MB.

BOINC will be notified that it needs to clean up the environment.
This is a temporary problem and so this job will be rescheduled for another time.

It looks like in (at least) one of your slot dirs there are remains of older WUs.

- Stop your BOINC client
- Start your VirtualBox GUI
- Check for unused/old VMs and delete them
- Restart your BOINC client

Thanks,Toby

I've upped the memory to 5 GB for Atlas, so we'll see

As for the old VMs The VM Manager shows 4 and BOINC Manager show four running VM WUs
