Hello,

I am trying to perform a remote blastn search through blast+ from the command line (on Linux Ubuntu). This results in an XML file with the following error message:

internal_error: (Severe Error) Blast search error: Details: search failed. # Informational Message: [blastsrv4.REAL]: Error: CPU usage limit was exceeded, resulting in SIGXCPU (24). No hits found

I have tried several (not too long) sequences. I used the following command:

blastn -db nt -query sequence.fasta -evalue 0.05 -word_size 6 -max_target_seqs 10 -out blast_output.xml -outfmt 5 -remote.

I know that a CPU error can happen when your search has a lot of sequences or a very long sequence, but sequence.fasta contains the sequence with accession code FS507595 which has 489bp. I also tried it with a different sequence, but had the same result. (I ran it with existing sequences, because I want to be sure that there should be hits) I also tried running the command from a different IP, which did not help.

Also, before blast starts running, I get the following message:

Critical: [blastn] External MBEDTLS version mismatch: 2.16.2 headers vs. 2.16.3 runtime.

I tried reinstalling blast+ and its dependencies, which did not help.

Does anyone have an idea on how to solve this? Your help would be much appreciated!

There may be an issue at NCBI's end. I would suggest waiting until tomorrow and checking back. You are using the latest blast+ available?

I noticed that I was not installing the latest version of blast+ when using apt, so I installed it manually. This helped with the MBEDTLS error, but I still get the CPU error. (I tried running it two days ago, so I am afraid waiting much longer won't help.)
