Globus Error: 3


Globus error 3: an I/O operation failed

Known causes:

Usually not related to an actual I/O failure. More commonly, GRAM has run out of available memory. Can also be generated by lack of disk/quota space, or permissions issues with the home directory.


Ask the grid admin to check/restart services using large amounts of memory and verify that your account has sufficient space to run the jobs you are trying to submit.
