I have a globus application transferring data to a data center using the python API. All of a sudden today, the transfers started failing with the following message:

(409, 'ClientError.Conflict.TooManyPendingJobs', 'This user has too many pending jobs!', 'OE4CDw78W')

When I print out the tasks with the following code, there are only 10 and they report having succeeded:

for task in transfer_client.task_list():

Anyone have any idea what might have gotten wedged or how to clear it?

You're likely running into the default request limit and not seeing the complete list.

num_results (int or none) – The number of tasks to fetch from the service. May be set to None to request the maximum allowable number of results. [Default: 10]

You're right. I was reading the wrong version ( and using "limit" instead of "num_results".
