I just recently got several inquiries from users who would like to set
up a local galaxy instance here at our university. I setup a server and
got it basically running, the only modifications I have made thus far,
are opening the website outside of localhost, and having it communicate
with our central postgres server. I have two questions I am hoping
someone can answer, I have spent some time on a few blogs and through
the archive and haven't found an exact answer.
My first question: Is there a way to make the galaxy server retrieve
data from a local storage set, instead of uploading newly through the
web interface? Http seems like an awfully inefficient way to transmit
sequence data. If I mounted an nfs directory full of sequence to the
server could I load and analyze it, and what options would I do to
My second question: When setting up a cluster do most people make the
galaxy server a head and farm out to compute nodes, or do you send jobs
off to a remote cluster entirely? It seems like the options in the
universe_wsgi.ini file calls a local daemon for cluster management, but
I am a bit confused.
I hope I haven't wasted anybodies time with these questions. This tool
looks amazing and our researchers are keen to get going at it.
