Compute Environments

Q: Can the name of a Compute Environment created in Tower contain special characters?

No. Tower version 21.12 and later do not support the inclusion of special characters in the name of Compute Environment objects.

Q: How do I set NXF_OPTS values for a Compute Environment?

This depends on your Tower version:

  • For v22.1.1+, specify the values via the Environment variables section of the "Add Compute Environment" screen.
  • For versions earlier than v22.1.1, specify the values via the Staging options > Pre-run script textbox on the "Add Compute Environment" screen. Example:

    export NXF_OPTS="-Xms64m -Xmx512m"
