Sorry if this has been asked before... I'm sure it has. After endless hundreds of sixtrack jobs I thought I would try an Atlas w/u.
I started off with an expected run time of 18 hrs or so. Well its now into 4 days 5hrs with 5% left. The last 10% has taken ages. I'm not sure it will make the 6th march deadline.
There seems to be little cpu activity (2 cores 4 logical cpu's) and little memory usage.

Is this typical?

Win10, I5 cpu 8 gig ram

You may upgrade your BOINC client, your VirtualBox version and install the VBox extension pack that matches the main VirtualBox version.
Then try a fresh ATLAS task and watch stderr.txt from the corresponding slots folder as well as the VM consoles at ALT-F2 and ALT-F3.
