I have a script
compute_all_matrices.sh which launches deepTools'
computeMatrix for a whole bunch of different files with various option. The user manual for
--numberOfProcessors INT, -p INT
Number of processors to use. Type "max/2" to use half the maximum number of processors or "max" to use all available processors. (default: 1)
I'd like to use up to 8 processors for each one, one after the other, and there are other people using these processors so I can't take them all. However, when I check on
htop, it looks like the script
compute_all_matrices.sh is only using one processor.
Is there any way to allow the "superscript" to use multiple processors for its "subscripts"?
I am usure why, but apparently my superscript was using all of the processors, just not all of the time. I think I must have only checked the state of CPU usage when it was using only 1 processor. Is this possible? If so, I believe that this question can be closed.
