I am thinking about how to use snakemake under the HPC system. Can snakemake work with multiple nodes from HPC?
For example, I request 8 nodes and each node has 20 cores in the batch script and as a result, I totally request 8*20=160 cores.
And then I set the --cores=160.
snakemake --cores 160
Does this work reasonably for snakemake? Have all the 160 cores been used properly?
PS, I have tried to use this setting to run many programs and it seems to be working well.
Thanks a lot,
