I have been using Galaxy to format and analyze NGS data for the last few months and it has been working beautifully. Recently however it has been running very slowly. Jobs like converting fastq -> fasta take hours and running a lastz can take days if not weeks. Just a few months ago it was running much faster. So my question is why is this happening? Is it something I am doing wrong on my end? Is the site experiencing more traffic? Can I change anything to make it run more quickly.
I really appreciate this free website and it has been a great help with my research.
