    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for writing in. As far as Cromwell (Terra's workflow execution engine) is concerned, a Running status for a job means Terra has submitted the request to Google, which may or may not start it immediately depending on resource availability and user quota. It's possible that these jobs have been submitted to Google but haven't yet started in earnest, which is why you did not see a stdout file.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know!

    Kind regards,
