"Waiting to run" status of the cell

Contributor II

Whenever I tried to execute the cell, it is not executing and it says waiting to run and gets stuck there.

I tried this with different clusters but the problem still persist.

What should be the standard process if I create a new cluster and wants to attach it to the newly created job so that job should run seamlessly?

Hi. Did you check the Event log of the cluster to see if the cluster is getting spinned up? Could you confirm if you are using Community Edition or your own cluster for this?

Hi @Vigneshraja Palaniraj​, I am using my own cluster.

Databricks Runtime Version: 11.3 LTS (includes Apache Spark 3.3.0, Scala 2.12)

Unity Catalog enabled.

Worker type: Standard_DS3_v2, 14 GB Memory, 4 Cores

Workers: 1

Driver type: Standard_DS3_v2, 14 GB Memory, 4 Cores

Please check the event log when you run a notebook and see if the cluster is spinning up or not
