Galaxy was moved to a new server and now uses a new job queue. This makes more compute nodes available to galaxy. We also adjusted application walltime and memory queuing parameters to more efficiently use our compute resources.
Any jobs that were running at 6:00 this morning will not be recoverable, you will need to rerun them.
Galaxy is moving to new hardware and a new queuing server on Wednesday. The galaxy server will go offline Tuesday evening. Any jobs not completed by 4:00 AM Wednesday will not be recovered and will have to to be rerun.
The storage quota system was activated on galaxy. You will likely see a
usage meter on the right hand side of the galaxy menu bar. The text
"Using ..%" indicates the percentage of disk space you are currently
using out of the maximum available to you. Your maximum available
storage is adjusted every 30 minutes to deduct space used by others
working on your project within Galaxy, and space used by your project's
directory in the MSI file system. If the amount of space you are using
exceeds your maximum available storage, jobs you submit will not be run.
You and other users working on your project can reclaim space by
deleting and purging unneeded files or datasets. ("Deleting" is equivalent to moving the item to "Trash/Recycle Bin", purge immediately removes the data.) You may also want to archive histories that you are no longer actively using. For information on archiving histories see: https://www.msi.umn.edu/sites/default/files/Galaxy_deleting_histories.pdf
A number of galaxy jobs have been failing lately, with a message in our reports of "The cluster DRM system terminated this job". We are trying to remedy this by allocating more memory in the job request.
Many of the tools that had been in the standard installation of galaxy are now optionally installed from the galaxy toolshed: http://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu/
The structural variation tool SHEAR has been updated to version 0.2.5
The cummeRbund tool for analyzing cuffdiff has been updated. The package includes a variation of the cuffdiff tool: "Cuffdiff for cummerbund" that can output the cuff data SQLite database for use in the cummerbund tool.
