Hey Iyad,

This is an area under active development.  You can track the progress of it on this card here:  https://trello.com/c/nwYQNFPK/56-data-library-evolution

The new data libraries are *much* faster, and if you'd like to enable them for your local site.  You should be able to see this in current versions of galaxy under Shared Data -> Data Libraries Beta.

Hello everyone


I have a lot of sequencing data that I wanted to load into one Galaxy data library.  I enabled loading the data by filesystem path and successfully “linked to the files” rather than copying them into galaxy.  Unfortunately, as I add more folders and data files, the library takes longer and longer to load.  At this point, the apache proxy just times out before galaxy returns any data.  Should I have more data libraries and fewer files within them?  Is there a reason for not implementing paging in the data libraries?


The web server hosting galaxy shows only 80% loads

30473 galaxy    20   0 1070m 443m 5160 S 81.6  1.4   9:59.89 python


The database server is at 13% load (kind of low)

20890 mysql     20   0 3762m 551m 9104 S 13.4  0.9 796:16.69 /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --plugin-dir=/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin --user=mysql --log-bin=/var/log/mysql/bin.log --slow-query-log-file=/var/log/mysql/slow-queries.log
