The status indicator on the bottom right of the cards has the following meanings:

icon_running.png Migration is running
icon_paused.png Migration is paused and waiting for user action to send the migration to the next phase
icon_waiting.png Migration is pending and waiting for Gateway or user action
(for example, if you run a file server migration and Gateway stops before the extraction phase is complete; you need to rerun Gateway).
