Use Cases for Workbench

Running Workflows

I want to run a workflow on a collection that exists
  • did my workflow run correctly?
  • if finished - check status, logs and output

Debugging Workflows

I have a collection with buggy/suspect results. I need to figure out where in the pipeline the bug crept in.
  • any big differences between the different "foo_XX" steps?
  • flags passed to the "foo_XX" steps
  • logs from one (all?) of the "bar_XX" steps
  • docker image metadata (docker image ID, name, version, dockerfile)

Finding Workflows

I need to find a "good" workflow invocation, and compare it to something that isn't working now
  • when did this workflow last succeed?

Creating a collection

I want to create a new collection
  • from data already in an existing collection
  • from a subset of files in an existing collection
  • combining files from different subsets of different collections
  • uploading from my desktop
  • downloading from ftp, s3 or other location
  • from the results of a already run workflow

Getting Collection Lineage

I have a collection that is valuable/interesting. I need to review/share/publish how it was generated (tools/versions/options/inputs).

Find a Collection

I need to find some data, and confirm I'm looking at the right collection.

Cost Estimation

I want to estimate how much money it will cost to run a workflow.

Run-time Estimation

I want to know how long it will take to run my workflow.
  • queued? when will it start?
  • taking a long time? how long does it normally take?
  • slower than it should be? should I run it with more CPUs, RAM, etc.?
