Hello Jonas, I don't believe this is currently doable in Galaxy and it may be difficult to add. I worry that some job/file/cluster configurations Galaxy could be in might not even be setup in such a way that intermediate files, standard output, etc... would not be available to the Galaxy processes until the job is complete.
Nonetheless, if you have a fairly simple cluster configuration you could probably output intermediate files/logging files as part of your job and the Galaxy processes would be able to read them. The UI will show these files as "running", but you may be able to hack up the Galaxy framework to provide additional logic and processing. If you do want to do this, I am not entirely sure to start but lib/galaxy/tools lib/galaxy/jobs, templates/webapps/galaxy/history/, static/scripts/mvc/history, static/scripts/mvc/dataset may be places to look. If you come up with some changes to Galaxy that allow supporting this use case or come up with specific recommendations for changes we can make to make Galaxy more amenable, please let us know. A more Galaxy friendly approach might be to break up your job into several jobs/tools and string them together with a workflow. This would allow users to inspect intermediate results as the workflow is processed. I understand though most jobs/tools cannot be broken up in this fashion. Sorry I could not be of more help, -John On Wed, Oct 16, 2013 at 7:40 AM, Jonas Hagberg <jonas.hagb...@scilifelab.se> wrote: > Hej > > I am new to Galaxy.
