Things are going better in the main server of Galaxy since the beginning

Glad to hear that, much more is
on the way!
However, I started worflows of NGS analysis last monday (30th of
september) for two histories (I guess something similar to Zuzana's
worflow). Since I started it, all the steps of the worflow are "waiting
to run" ("grey status"). I tried many times to start them by clicking on
"Resume paused jobs" (in the history wheel-tool menu), but nothing happened.
As you said in your reply to Zuzana, NGS jobs are still in hold so far.
Do you confirm me I ought to wait (and avoid cancelling the worflow to
start a new one, as it would end up in more delay)?
Canceling and re-starting
workflows will do nothing but move your work
back to the end of the queue. I would leave queued jobs alone unless you
no longer want to do that analysis anymore (permanently delete if really
do not need).
At the same time, I am doing other NGS analysis with other histories
(GATK Base Quality Recalibration and Unified Genotyper) and these jobs
are working well. This time, I am doing all the steps sequentially,
without worflows. Do individual NGS jobs run better than worflows or is
it just variable from tool to tool ?
Worflows queue jobs sooner, so are a good
strategy no matter the tool -
all these do is add multiple tool jobs to your history at once. From
there, it is just the same as if you started the jobs individually (but
somehow at the same time!).
It is important to note here that your jobs are distributed "per user".
If you have a bunch of workflows running in different histories, then
these will be competing for the job slot when it is your turn to have a
job run. The job queued earliest will run. When the server is very busy,
be sure to queue up what is most important first.
Thank you for reply and for all your constant efforts to maintain
very useful plateform in shape !
Thanks for our great development team and active
They keep it all together!
