Hi Jasper,
I see that you posted this over to the galaxy-dev@bx.psu.edu mailing list now, which is best for local instance questions.

I have a very simple jobrunner script that allows only 1 job to be run as  this galaxy is used for one thing in particular which consumes almost all resources.

To do this I set the following:

        <plugin id="local" type="runner" load="galaxy.jobs.runners.local:LocalJobRunner" workers="1"/>

This works, but is it possible to create a second worker that is only allowed to be used for uploading files? So people can upload their data already and only enter the queue for the big analysis? Otherwise if they turn their computer off in the evening the upload is gone...
