Breakout Presentation:]]

A GalaxyCzars breakout session was held at GCC2012. This was an opportunity for this group to meet face-to-face for the first time. GalaxyCzars is about installing, configuring, and maintaining large Galaxy installations. It was open to anyone.

  • We need a new name! :: We tried to brainstorm a new name for the group... being that it was Friday afternoon this was a difficult task! We will keep looking for a new name. Some suggestions: GalaxyLocals, GalaxyCommons, etc.

  • Talked about goals for the group :: Can we as a collective community build a set of common topologies? Can we find common problems?

  • Talked about problems that a lot of us have: :: A common problem across the group was how to tune tools for the cluster. IE set the number of threads, min/max heap
