I am working on an HPC and running the cluster.split command on my data. It’s generating a number of files and my .dist file (~1.3 TB and counting) is causing issues with other jobs running on the same server node.
The Advanced Research Computing staff has asked me whether I could supply a path as input argument to mothur or in the script for where to write that dist file? They suggested that we can give mothur a path on the file system where to store the dist file (or at least we can have symbolic link). Is that possible?
