The goal of this project is to produce an estimator for runtime and memory consumption: (runtime, memory) = f(script_name, number_of_observations, number_of_samples, sparsity). This estimator will be based off of empirical results from standard test data sets (to be created, described below) and validated with real world datasets. Once in place, we can then use this estimator to a) improve resource utilization on both growler and compy b) determine what scripts to target for optimization.
Temporary repo for refactoring of parallel QIIME. This code was all merged into the main QIIME svn repository on 16 July 2012 (revision 3130). This repository is now closed for commit access - all future updates should happen in the main QIIME repository.
