Dear Galaxy devs / support,

I am trying to understand the following snippet from job_conf.xml (I want to use drmaa v1)
<destination id="pbs_drmaa_orion" runner="drmaa" tags="merc">
            <param id="destination">galaxy@merc</param>

Based on someone's configuration above, I am trying to customize to my system.

I'm trying to understand where/how the parameters are associated?
- tags?
- destination in param id? is this the queue? I also checked the DRMAA specification but cannot find any "destination" as a keyword. - galaxy@merc? is merc pointing to the hostname, and galaxy the queue name? (I know the instution's cluster is called "merc", but I don't know if the "merc" in the tag is for convenience or is being read as the hostname?

I've looked through: - describes job_conf.xml

but cannot make sense, eg. for "tags" is says "Tags to which this destination belongs."
Eg. "tags="longwalltime,bigcluster""

Do you have more detailed documention on configuration?
