This usually means that the process ran out of time before it completed. So you may have to increase the time at the top of your run script, or reduce the number of days you run for (STOP_N and STOP_OPTION. The maximum on yellowstone is 12 hours, which would be written like this in your run script:#BSUB -W 12:00I do not know what BalanceCheck is. It is not really an error, but a very common warning. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with your run stopping.

Hi all, I have the same problem. But reducing STOP_N and STOP_OPTION is not working for me. Does anyone have other methods to solve this problem?
