Hi Everyone, we just setup a new dedicated Galaxy server that has 64 CPU Cores and 512 Gigs of RAM. We were hoping to decrease the run time for our pipelines, but we don't seem to notice any major difference from a former server with 4 CPU cores and 64 Gigs of RAM that was running Galaxy as well.
I read in one posting that we may need to setup a resource manager such as SLURM or Torque. Does this also involve setting up the dramaa or any other API so that jobs are routed to the resource manager? Is there any good updated guideline on how to do this? Please note that we are using a single stand alone server, not a cluster. We tried using our cluster that runs SLURM, but we could not manage to configure the runners correctly. For this reason we pulled a single node and setup Galaxy as a stand alone production server.
Please advise. Thank you !
