Hi Nikolay,
The slurm branch that John mentioned sounds great! That might be your best bet.
I didn't get drmaa to run with multiple clusters with flags, but I did 'assign' 
different job handlers to different destinations in the drmaa.py runner in 
Galaxy - but that is a bit of a hacky way to do it.

Nate has a branch of slurm drmaa that allows specifying a --clusters
argument in the native specification this can be used to target
multiple hosts.

More information can be found here:


Here is how Nate uses it to configure usegalaxy.org:


I guess instead of installing slurm-drmaa for a package manager or the
default source - you will just need to install Nate's version.

Hi, John, Dan, Carrie and all others,

I am considering a task of setting up a Galaxy instance which shall send
jobs to more than on cluster at a time. In my case I am using drmaa-python
and I was wondering if it was possible to configure multiple drmaa runners
each "pointing" at a different (slurm) control host, e.g.




Thanks a lot for your advice
