An Update to Galaxy Cloudman
November 29th 2011
A new version of CloudMan for running Galaxy on Amazon cloud has been released yesterday. Any new cluster will automatically use this version. Existing clusters will have a link displayed at the top of the CloudMan console offering to perform an automated update.
The new version brings the following updates/features:
- Added ability to specify a path where Galaxy is installed as part of user data (using
galaxy_homekey). This allows custom Galaxy application to be installed and picked up by CloudMan instead of the default one. This works across cluster invocations as well as for shared clusters. For a complete list of user data options see Admin/Cloud/UserData
/etc/bash.bashrcfor system wide shell logins
- Support for 3.0 Kernel on Ubuntu 11.10 for SGE. Contributed by Brad Chapman.
- Fix for SGE install after cloud-init has run and changed
post_start_servicenow runs if the script exists in the cluster bucket even if no URL was provided as part of current user data
- Fix recognition of existing and attached file system volumes on instance reboot
