NAME - Synchronize local file system to GBrowse slave volume.


        % sudo --conf     /etc/gbrowse2/aws_balancer.conf \
                                         --mysql    /var/lib/mysql \
                                         --postgres /var/lib/postgresql

        updated conf file, previous version in /etc/gbrowse2/aws_balancer.conf.bak


       This script is run in conjunction with Amazon Web Server-based GBrowse render slave load
       balancing, which is described in more detail in the manual page for

       The script should be run on the GBrowse master machine each
       time you add a new database to an existing data source, or if you add a whole new data
       source. What it does is to prepare a new Amazon EBS snapshot containing a copy of all the
       data needed for the GBrowse slave to run. This snapshot is then attached to new slave

       After running, it updates the conf file with the current versions of the slave AMI and the
       data snapshot(s).

        % sudo --conf     /etc/gbrowse2/aws_balancer.conf \
                                          --mysql    /var/lib/mysql \
                                          --postgres /var/lib/postgresql

       The --conf argument is required. The script will create a snapshot of the appropriate
       size, mount it on a temporary staging instance, and rsync a copy of your gbrowse databases
       directory (e.g. /var/lib/gbrowse2/databases) to the snapshot. If you have created mysql or
       postgres databases, you must also give the paths to their database file directories, as
       shown in the example.

       Note that ALL your mysql and postgres data files located on the master machine will be
       copied; not just those used for track display.
