I suspended an ATLAS-VM overnight and restored it this morning.
It ended very quickly, BOINC validated OK, but there was no valid ATLAS HITS-file uploaded.

It seems that the server connected to the VM decided to kill the VM-job: Pilot has decided to kill looping job 3637921913 at 2017-10-07T07:23:41+-100

Why??

the interesting part of this is that the notice talks about a "looping job".

So, the question may be: is a suspended task considered to run in a loop and therefore terminaded after some time?
