Hi,
I could not find a topic about Gurumediation. So, lets start it here.
One of my pc's has constant error with atlas jos i.e. gurumeditation. have you seen similar, and how I should troubleshoot this forward? PS I've 2 other pc's with the same sw conf and they are fine. HW is of course different. Below is one such error log:

Gurumediation is a serious VM error, its been in my experience that VirtualBox isn't install properly

Ok - what is weird here is that some atlas jobs go thru but some do not. Anyway, I will limit cpu number and reinstall virtualbox once again ...

And the resolution in case someone else is stumping into teh same issue:
Apparently my pc has more cpu's per mem for Atlas job i.e. 8vcpu vs 8gb ram. When I limited atlas job to use only 4vcpu's the problem disappeared.
Case closed.
