there are errors in the logfile and a HITS-file is missing


I hadn't spotted that, though this seems to be just in the guest log messages, not anything wrong with my setup, and I can't see any similar messages in later tasks, so it could just be a one-off. Also, that task went on to complete ok :
2017-05-14 04:35:52 (26083): Guest Log: Successfully finished the ATLAS job!

I've altered the preferences to use all 4 of my CPUs now (I was only throttling it to 3 to let some other tasks get through at the same time). These seem fine as well, all are now getting successful finishes and validating ok, so I'm happy anyway. :-)

I switched back to 3 CPUs and tasks seem to be working ok again now. Thanks! :-)

Interesting - I've been getting the same problem with several of my Atlas tasks after recently switching to 2 CPUs. Not all of them, but a lot of them. I'm already on the latest version of VirtualBox (5.1.12) according to apt-get, but will change it to use 3 CPUs instead (like I had before) and see how that goes. Thanks for the info.
