Hello gents,


Hope everyone had a great holiday break!

Wish you guys all the best for 2015!


I have a couple of questions about how resources (CPU and memory) is allocated when you have a galaxy and torque installation.


So I’ve setup torque with some default and maximum amount of CPU and memory allocations.

However, I have some worries when it comes to application (like tophat for example).

By default, it takes half the CPU of a server unless specified otherwise.

How is the CPU allocation is specified to application like tophat through galaxy?


Also, how does galaxy react if a job needs more memory than the limit set by torque?


Any information would help me a lot!


My sincere salutations to you all!!!
