SPAdes, Unicycler, and Trinity have transitioned to run on the new Bridges-2 supercomputer

The Bridges-2 Supercomputer at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center has recently transitioned into production status and replaced the older Bridges-1 supercomputer where Galaxy’s SPAdes, Unicycler, and Trinity tools previously ran. The memory configuration of Bridges-2 is significantly different than that of Bridges-1 and as a result, all jobs that are sent to Bridges-2 are being allocated 256 GB of memory until we collect some test data that will allow us to better predetermine appropriate memory requests for these tools. As a result, you may experience unexpected job failures using these tools even when using parameters and inputs similar to those that were successful in the past when run on Bridges-1.

This data collection process should be completed in the next week, following the conclusion of the GTN Smörgåsbord event. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience as we work on this!
