CloudMan setup- Virtual hardware?

Hi everyone,

I’m setting up CloudMan for the first time because I tried running VCF-VCFTools on usegalaxy.org and it said “This job was terminated because it used more memory than it was allocated”. What is the appropriate “Virtual Hardware” to choose when setting up CloudMan so that it has more computing power than usegalaxy.org? Thanks.

This is highly dependent on the input dataset. You will need to determine your requirements based on the VCFTools documentation.

Some general guidelines about Cloudman resource choices are also available here: https://galaxyproject.org/teach/

That said, before investing in setting up a Cloudman server, check your inputs. Format and related issues often trigger memory failures. Details are covered in this FAQ: My job ended with an error. What can I do?
