Hmm, I have a job running step3 on HPC that was killed for some reason. It didn't checkpoint the finished clusters at state=2.5 for some reason. Maybe has to do with how it was killed. It also left behind the tmp-aligns/ dir. Seems the try/exception cleanup effort doesn't work like we had hoped when a node is shutdown without warning...
One way around this would be to do multiple saves while the step is running.

example: save could happen after each is clustered, and after each finishes aligning. This will take some restructuring. I can work when doing the major parallel restructuring and progress bars. Might be a lot of work.
Did you get Glenn's GBS to go all the way through step7 yet? That will be a milestone.

Glenns' data is still cranking out step 6. I actually had a different experience w/ hpc killing jobs, the LSU cluster has a 72hr wall clock limit, so it kills long jobs (like step 3) before it's done, but it killed in a nice way where step 2.5 was preserved and it cleaned up the tmp files. Maybe different cluster programs have different strategies for killing tasks.

Oh, that's good to know. I'll try to find out more details.
