How to create bigger/huge Docker images (>100gb) in CentOS 7.x (using Docker 1.12.5)
View 1_How to create bigger - huge Docker images (>100gb) in CentOS 7.x (using Docker 1.12.5)
The default Docker daemon on CentOS 7.x from the official package repository has two very annoying limitations when trying to create bigger images.
First is the default base image is 10gb space and second there is another barrier with the thin layer which is set to 100gb.
I needed a Docker image containing a big database which was about 120gb.
When I COPY'ed the huge database in the Dockerfile to build the image, I got a

How to pass dynamic values such as username to a galaxy tool using dynamic_options
View 1 How to pass dynamic values such as username to a galaxy tool using dynamic_options
Tried a lot of different approaches to pass the username or user id to a galaxy tool configuration, nothing seemed to work,
e.g. the __user_id__ or user_name could not be passed to a function referenced by dynamic_options, e.g.:
<param name="mytool" type="select" dynamic_options="mystuff(userid=__user_id__)" />
<param name="mytool" type="select" dynamic_options="mystuff(username=__user_name__)" />
did not work, neither other approaches such as username='$__user_name__' or ${__user_name__} or '${__user_name__}'
it seems that the reserved variables from this document here cannot be accessed by a dynamic_options method:

How to user torque openpbs in python, a small howto
View 1 how_to_use_torque_openpbs_in_python_subprocess
Just a small note, here is how you can convert commandline calls in python to use openpbs/torque
If the command is doing something in the background without any dependency to the main script thats easy,
just use qsub in your subprocess call and let if fork off.
But what you do if you have some subprocess calls which wait for a program or script to finish (it depends on it)?
After some Internet research I found qsub's parameter "-I -x" to be exactly what I needed!
lets say you have the following command fragment:
cmd = 'lastdb -Q 0 %s %s' % (last_index, validated_ref) # format the database
