First, thank you very much for your prompt answer.
It's extremely appreciated.
Secondly, I have some other questions: whatever answers you can provide me with, will be
Please, forgive my beginner level understanding of an DRM system.
1. Once I compile, make and install the Torque Submit Node code against the server running
Galaxy, what exactly is the purpose for an DRMAA ?
2. What is exactly the PBS step describe here:
galaxy_user@galaxy_server% LIBTORQUE_DIR=/path/to/libtorque python scripts/scramble.py -e
What does it do exactly ?
3. All servers which includes my torque server, torque compute nodes and torque submit
node (a.k.a galaxy server) have the galaxy user defines and its home shared on all of
them. This means all of them have access (via NFS) of the installation directory of
galaxy. But what about the MySQL server access. Does the torque server or the compute
nodes need access to that service?
I hope I'm not sending too many emails/questions...
Thank you very much!

I am not sure we have a walkthrough for Torque specifically - but if you have Galaxy up
and running and you can qsub commands to torque - hopefully you have done all of the hard
You will need a DRMAA library for your torque setup -
suggests compiling pbs_drmaa and outlines how to set it up. After that you just need to
add a plugin and default destination to your job_conf.xml file - also outlined on that

Good luck and let us know if you encounter any problems.

My name is Edgar Fernandez. I’m a sys. admin. at University of Montreal.
I’ve contacted you a while back about installing galaxy and I’ve
successfully done it on a redhat 6 server.
I see myself in a situation where I need to utilise all my redhat
servers (who are identical to the server running the galaxy website).
I’ve also successfully installed a server torque with compute notes
and clients nodes.
What are the last step to make the link between galaxy and torque?
Also, once that connection is made, how will galaxy keep track of the
I mean who will it know this job that just finished is for this user
and not another ?
Also, my torque installation is so that my server running galaxy is a
submit node and a client node.
I hope this is not a problem.
