       makeflow_amazon_batch_setup - set up Amazon services for running Makeflow


       makeflow_amazon_batch_setup  <desired-num-cores>  <min-num-cores> <max-num-cores> <config-


       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 fourth argument. If the fourth argument is  not  provided,
       then  it will be writen out to makeflow_amazon_batch.config in the director this script is
       called.  The first argument is the desired number of cores for the environment. The second
       argument is the minimum number of cores acceptable for the environment. The third argument
       is the maximum number of cores that the environment should ever have at its disposal.

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

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


       Before using makeflow_amazon_batch_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.

       Next, ensure that the IAM associated with the secret keys passed to aws configure has  the
       following policies attached to it:





       After ensuring that, the script requires that you have the following Roles enabled on your

       *AWSBatchServiceRole   --    This    should    have    an    arn    which    looks    like
       arn:aws:iam:ACCOUNT_ID_NUM:role/service-role/AWSBatchServiceRole   which  has  the  policy
       AWSBatchServiceRole attached.

       *ecsInstanceRole    --    This    should    have    an    arn     which     looks     like
       arn:aws:iam:ACCOUNT_ID_NUM:role/ecsInstanceRole       which       has      the      policy
       AmazonEC2ContainerServiceforEC2Role attached.

       The easiest way to create these roles is to enter the Amazon Batch dashboard and create an
       environment  via  their  wizard.  In  the  "Serice  role" and "Instance role" fields, have
       "Create new role" selected.

       When these steps have been accomplished, then the script will run correctly and setup  for
       you a batch environment for you to run your makeflow in.
