Batch processing

Batch processing refers to running an analysis multiple times, using different inputs for each analysis run. For example, if you have 10 sequence lists and wish to run 10 mapping analyses, one per sequence list, then these 10 analyses could be launched by setting up one batch job. When a job is run in batch mode, parameter settings stay the same for each run. It is just the inputs that are changed.

This section describes batch processing as it applies to most workbench tools and to workflows with a single input element.

Batching installed workflows with multiple input elements, where all input elements will be changed per batch, is done differently (see Batch launching workflows with multiple inputs that change per batch).
