As you may or may not know, LabKey Server has the capability to offload certain types of processing to separate computers such as
- Rserv: offload the execution of R reports/views to an Rserv running on a separate computer
- Remote Pipeline: offload proteomics and sequence analysis computation to a separate computer
- Galaxy: offload sequence analysis and genotyping to a separate Galaxy server.
Last month, one of LabKey’s developers, Kevin Krouse, wrote up instructions for using Vagrant to make development and testing of features using Rserv easier. I took his work and expanded it
- to support Remote Pipeline servers
- uses chef-solo to handle configuration during provisioning.
- [update 9/11] Ben Bimber added support for his sequence analysis pipeline.
- General Usage Instructions
- Running an Rserv on your dev machine
- Running a Remote Pipeline Server for proteomics development/testing
- [update 9/11. This was added by Ben Bimber] Running a Remote Pipeline Server for sequence analysis development/testing
Once these VMs have been installed, all you need to do is run
vagrant up and the VM will be started on your dev machine.
