Since yesterday I struggle to do basically everything on the European Galaxy server. It seems to me that there are plenty (like 2K) of Spades jobs running that saturates the cluster…
see Europe server not working - #2 by wm75.
Those 2K Spades jobs (reduced by now to just 200) do not really compete with your jobs in the queue because of the per-user concurrency limit. If you look at currently running tools, you’ll see that this is a happy mix of many different things.
That said, .eu might still not be performing at 100% after this weekend’s update to the latest release of Galaxy, but things are getting better.
