I tried the following in the xml: (it is modified that it is not a valid xml as I cannot deposit everything here yet….)
the following somehow ignores the amount of jobs as when I run 2 the second one runs immediately after the first one in the history panel and in the terminal top I can see it as well.

You have two options:

(1) set the number of workers in the LocalJobRunner;

(2) Galaxy can use many different computing clusters, all of which have queuing systems that you can control.

See this page for more details on both options:

Good luck,

Is it possible to create a queue system for separate jobs.

I have a module which roughly consumes all CPUs on our machine and if another user decides to run the same module with other data it should  wait till all other runs are finished to prevent overloading.

Is there a setting for this?
