Hi Nate. I do understand that this is not a bug directly stemming from the
Galaxy code base. Munge is really just a tool to pass user credentials between
systems during job submission to the PBS server. Galaxy is spooling jobs
through the PBS job runner, which presumably indirectly calls munge through
jobs submission to the PBS server. I'm just not sure why the munge process is
sometimes becoming corrupt. This is an issue since I rapidly reach my max
number of threads for the Galaxy user on my head node.
At this point I guess I'll try downloading the latest stable version of Torque
and build RPMs. I have been using what is in EPEL for RHEL6. Thanks for the
reply, and any other thoughts are still appreciated!
