Part of the problem I am facing involves the SGE/UGE specific arguments I have defined in universe_wsgi.ini (which still work fine if I use them with qsub manually). My original settings looked like this, [galaxy:tool_runners] ncbi_blastp_wrapper = drmaa://-V -l hostname="n08-04-008-*|n11-04-048-cortana" -pe smp 4/ That worked fine in Galaxy with SGE, and still works fine with UGE using qsub manually. However, the "-pe smp 4" part does not work for queue submission anymore with UGE. Simplifying to: [galaxy:tool_runners] ncbi_blastp_wrapper = drmaa://-V -pe smp 4/ fails: galaxy.jobs.handler INFO 2013-01-16 11:49:39,603 (346) Job dispatched galaxy.jobs.runners.drmaa DEBUG 2013-01-16 11:49:40,346 (346) submitting file /mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/database/pbs/galaxy_346.sh galaxy.jobs.runners.drmaa DEBUG 2013-01-16 11:49:40,347 (346) command is: blastp -version &> /mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/database/tmp/GALAXY_VERSION_STRING_346; blastp -query "/mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/database/files/000/dataset_344.dat" -db "/mnt/shared/cluster/blast/galaxy/oomycete_CDS" -task blastp -evalue 0.001 -out /mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/database/files/000/dataset_394.dat -outfmt 6 -num_threads 8 galaxy.jobs.runners.drmaa DEBUG 2013-01-16 11:49:40,347 (346) spec: -pe smp 4 galaxy.jobs.runners.drmaa ERROR 2013-01-16 11:49:40,351 Uncaught exception queueing job Traceback (most recent call last): File "/mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/lib/galaxy/jobs/runners/drmaa.py", line 146, in run_next self.queue_job( obj ) File "/mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/lib/galaxy/jobs/runners/drmaa.py", line 235, in queue_job job_id = self.ds.runJob(jt) File "/mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/eggs/drmaa-0.4b3-py2.6.egg/drmaa/__init__.py", line 331, in runJob _h.c(_w.drmaa_run_job, jid, _ct.sizeof(jid), jobTemplate) File "/mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/eggs/drmaa-0.4b3-py2.6.egg/drmaa/helpers.py", line 213, in c return f(*(args + (error_buffer, sizeof(error_buffer)))) File "/mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/eggs/drmaa-0.4b3-py2.6.egg/drmaa/errors.py", line 90, in error_check raise _ERRORS[code-1]("code %s: %s" % (code, error_buffer.value)) DeniedByDrmException: code 17: error: no suitable queues Clearly something is going wrong in passing the option to UGE. Note this works at the command line: $ qsub -pe smp 4 /mnt/galaxy/galaxy-central/database/pbs/galaxy_346.sh Your job 252 ("galaxy_346.sh") has been submitted $ qstat | grep 252 252 0.60500 galaxy_346 galaxy qw 01/16/2013 11:50:41 4 If I remove this option, job submission works. Given Galaxy gives UGE the 'native spec' as a string, I don't think this is a Galaxy problem. Rather, it could be an incompatibility in UGE versus SGE? I can probably workaround this particular issue - there are other ways to request four processors and/or a whole cluster node. So, to recap, I needed to remove any colons in job scripts fixed (crude patch on previous email), and tweak my SGE/UGE settings in the universe_wsgi.ini file. I would also like to see a clear error message for the user when an DeniedByDrmException is raised during job submission - currently this is not handled gracefully at all. I've now had some cluster jobs succeed via Galaxy, but it does not seem to be as reliable as under SGE. Perhaps there is some heavy IO on the cluster at the moment which may be confusing things...
