    Hi Andrew Davidson,

     

    Terra runs on GCP VMs so this Google doc may be useful to explain the relationship between CPUs and threads.

    We maintain ownership of billing projects created on Terra, which is why you do not have access to change any quotas. If you'd like to increase a quota in your project billing project, let us know and we will submit a request to Google on your behalf. The last section of this article has some guidance on determining how much CPU quota you will need for your analysis.

    Lastly, the "method configuration" you are referring to is the default values you can set for the inputs in your workflow. It can also apply to your runtime attributes if you're calling a variable for those inputs. See this featured cram-to-bam WDL in the Methods Repository and it's method configuration for an example.

     

    Best,

    Samantha
