we extended the galaxy functionality with a couple of smaller custom
scripts. Now we are in the need of some tmpFiles, since our data is
getting bigger. As far as I understand galaxy by now there might be
- job_working_directory (all "normal" files generated by the job,
deleted upon completion of job - safe?)
- tmp-folder within the database folder (custom path in universe_wsgi.ini?)
- system-tmp-folder (e.g. samtools-wraper -> only very limited space
on this harddisk)
What is the best way to store temporary data in Galaxy (that can be
deleted after job completion)?
It's really up to your personal preference. In the past we've used all
three. In general, if the filesystem your job_working_directory resides
in is suitable, it is probably the easiest choice since you get free
cleanup on job completion.
Thank you in advance for your help!
