Heads up:
We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
Update: July 26, 2019
This section of the forum is now closed; we are working on a new support model for WDL that we will share here shortly. For Cromwell-specific issues, see the Cromwell docs and post questions on Github.

How does scatter-gather in WDL handle memory limits

Specifically in a LSF usage scenario. Say I have 10 samples that I pipe into GATK via WDL's scatter gather pipeline, and resource limit so that 10 samples cannot be run at the same time. Would WDL try to force the 10 jobs through and therefore gets killed by the job scheduler, or does it run a subset and keep within the memory limit?
