makeflow_ec2_setup - set up Amazon services for running Makeflow


makeflow_ec2_setup <config-file> <ami>


Before using makeflow_ec2_setup, make sure that you install the AWS Command Line Interface tools, have the aws command in your PATH, and run aws configure to set up your secret keys and default region.

makeflow_ec2_setup prepares Amazon services for running a Makeflow. It creates a virtual private cluster, subnets, key pairs, and other details, and writes these out to a configuration file given by the first argument. The second argument is the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that will be used by default in the workflow, if not specified for individual jobs.

Once the configuration file is created, you may run makeflow with the -T amazon option and give the name of the created config file with --amazon-config.

When complete, you can clean up the virtual cluster and related items by running makeflow_ec2_cleanup




makeflow_ec2_setup my.config ami-343a694f
makeflow -T amazon --amazon-config my.config example.makeflow
makeflow_ec2_cleanup my.config
