Please provide more information about your operating system and which version of ATK you are using.

Meanwhile, you should be able to simply kill the process using "kill" in the terminal if you are on linux or through the task manager on Windows.

VNL will not crash if you kill the atkpython process

To elaborate on Anders' point, you should see either "atkpython" or "atkpython_exec" and you can kill this process without "harming" VNL. Thanks for providing information about the operating system. Could you please also write which version of VNL/ATK you are using? I think you have a hit a bug which has been fixed in the upcoming release, but I would like some more information to be sure that it is indeed the same problem.

Also, just to clarify: Does the Job Manager act as if the job is finished, but the job continues running when you look at top? Or is the Job Manager itself unresponsive?

i'm using 2015.1 version. Yeah it does sometimes, job continues running but job manager acts like job is finished. It uses so much core at that time and everything hangs for sometime. then i need to restart my pc.

Thanks for the update. It sounds like it is a known bug which will be fixed in the upcoming release. Until then, you can kill the process "atkpython_exec" using the "kill" command from the terminal. This way you should not need to restart your computer.
