How Actively Used is Queue?
I have a feeling this question doesnt have a straight answer, but I'm curious: how actively used is queue at the Broad as of 2015, and can anyone speak to whether the Broad views queue as part of the long term picture?
Based on what I read, queue is really the only documented way to parallelize tasks, since a lot of tools dont have multi-threading options. On paper, queue look like it offers a pretty nice looking set of features. There doesnt appear to be a terribly active user base on this site around queue and most docs are a few years old. That is generally not a good sign; however, the fact that you need some non-trivial setup and a cluster to really take advantage of this probably accounts for at least some of that. I'm pretty interested in seeing whether we can implement it internally, but I am hoping to get some sense of how actively used the platform is first.
Thanks for any insight.
