Hi, Ciara, AFAIK new tools always require a server restart at present, but an already loaded tool can have updates to the tool XML re-read using the 'Reload a tool's configuration' option from the administrative menu if your login is listed as an administrator in the config file.
Restarting Galaxy seems relatively benign if jobs are running on a cluster. SGE jobs (eg) will be correctly handled and managed. Busy users may see a service unavailable message from Apache for the time it takes to restart but in my experience they can generally cope with the occasional unscheduled server bounce to import a new tool - YMMV On Thu, May 24, 2012 at 1:10 PM, Ciara Ledero <lede...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi there, > > I understand that everytime I create a new tool, I would have to restart > Galaxy to see the changes that I've made.
