BioExcel’s webinar series continue with a special discussion on CWLEXEC: A new open source tool to run CWL workflows on LSF



The Common Workflow Language (CWL) is a community-led specification for describing analysis workflows and tools in a way that makes them portable and scalable across a variety of software and hardware environments, from workstations to cluster, cloud, and high performance computing (HPC) environments. IBM Spectrum LSF (formerly IBM Platform LSF) is a complete workload management solution for demanding HPC environments. Featuring intelligent, policy-driven scheduling, it helps organizations accelerate research and design while controlling costs through superior resource utilization. Recognizing the popularity of CWL among LSF users, we introduce a new open source project CWLEXEC to support running CWL workflows on LSF. The project will feature smooth integration with LSF with high efficiency and scalability, self-healing of workflows, support user-specified submission options while keeping CWL definitions portable, and other benefits.
