ARCHER jobs queuing

Reported by: webber24 Owned by: um_support

Dear CMS,

I was wondering whether there was any possibility that you could look at one of my runs, for example xkctk to see why the job is spending up to a day in the ARCHER queue. Is the queue really that slow, or are there optimisations to the job that can be undertaken?

Best Wishes,

ARCHER is very busy (see, running almost to capacity, with the exception on a couple dips on Wednesday 29th Oct. You can run checkQueue to find little more info:
