Condor SOAR Notes

The notes below are based on conversations with Bill Taylor. They are aimed to explicitly lay out how we use SOAR on for projects.

New Generic & qtlhot Notes

Login to and go to /home2/bt.

rundata: Look at stage_qtlhot, qtlhotGENERIC and qtlhot. The stage_qtlhot directory has to run the spawned qtlhot children. The qtlhotGENERIC/NEWDATA says to look in /home2/bt/rundata for project qtlhot. In qtlhot, find dataset_blah.

SOAR/sources: Folder qtlhot/v1 has code and jobs directories. The perl scripts in jobs were curated by bt to set up phase1,phase2,phase3. The spawns nruns (read from params.txt file) of dataset_blah-n, n=1:nruns, one for each phase2 run. The phase2 runs each spawn n.split (read from groups.txt file created in phase1, initially read from params.txt in phase1) sub-jobs. Also look at make_job_{dag_text,submits}.pl for the flow of the template.

In order to set up a generic 3-phase run for Aimee, I think I can copy qtlhot and make a few simple mods. If nruns is set to 1, then we can use most of the code. Then different R libraries and code could be dropped in dataset_job files in the qtlruns project. An idea.
