Hi there! We submit mothur jobs to our computing cluster with PBS software where we specify the cpu and memory resources and wall time of the job. Home · BigelowLab/charlie Wiki · GitHub
I only know anecdotally the resources needed to process jobs with a certain number of samples. From the mothur development side, can you advise on what might be optimal for mothur as a program? I am starting to have some trouble with 80 miseq samples, which in my limited experience should be possible with our computing power. I don’t think this is always a more is better situation, but this is way out of my expertise. Thanks for the advise!
