I am trying to figure out how to run big job on terra. I want to be fast, efficient, and cheap. My goal is to create an easy-to-use pipeline for my lab.
many bioinformatic tools allow you to specify the number of threads to use as a command-line argument. How is the number of threads and the workflow "runtime cpu" related?
I started going through https://support.terra.bio/hc/en-us/articles/360059028911-Scaling-your-workflow-submissions
I have a little test workflow I have testing with 10 samples. It runs however I do not think it will work well if I had to run a couple of 100 samples.
on google cloud quota page. it looks like cpu regional default is set to 24. The documentation says I have to contact terra support to change the value. This seems odd. to me as I have direct access to the google admin page. I am new to terra and google and am using Google's free $300 offer. I am afraid of misconfiguration and blowing my account
what are configuration best practices?
current I wrote my test workflows so that the runtime parameters have default inputs. In deployment, it unlikely my users will know how to set these values. I noticed that when you "export task to workspace" you are asked to 'select a method configuration' What is the configuration? is this related to runtime configuration
