There are some global internal settings in SciPipe that can be changed via setting environment variables. The available options are listed below.

Buffert size

The buffert size is the number of information packets stored on each connection between an out-port and and in-port. This number, while by default being set to 128, is sometimes useful to increase, in order to work around some corner cases with stalling workflows. To do this, you can set the environment variable SCIPIPE_BUFSIZE, to a value other than 128, for example like this:

export SCIPIPE_BUFSIZE=1024 && go run myworkflow.go
