Hi all,

This is still happening to me, running latest OGS:

scg3-0-2                linux-x64      32 14.72   63.0G    5.7G    9.8G 
     Host Resource(s):      hc:h_vmem=12.375G
scg3-0-20               linux-x64      32 16.12   63.0G    3.5G    9.8G 
     Host Resource(s):      hc:h_vmem=-23.906G
scg3-0-21               linux-x64      32 13.95   63.0G    8.8G    9.8G 
     Host Resource(s):      hc:h_vmem=-15.906G
scg3-0-22               linux-x64      32 13.21   63.0G    5.0G    9.8G 
     Host Resource(s):      hc:h_vmem=-15.906G
scg3-0-23               linux-x64      32 12.81   63.0G    8.4G    9.8G 
     Host Resource(s):      hc:h_vmem=1.000G

Is there anything I can do to diagnose this issue?
