The remote
process is unavailable due to:
  • the host reboot;
  • an unexpected signal received;
  • out-of-memory manager (OOM) errors;
  • job termination by the Job Scheduler (PBS Pro*,  SLURM*) in case of resources limitation (for example, walltime or cputime limitation).
  1. Check the system log files.
  2. Try to find the reason of the
    process termination and fix the issue.
