Initial release of `gxadmin` tool



The good folks over at Galaxy Europe have developed a cool bit of code to help out Galaxy systems administrators. It's called gxadmin, it's available on GitHub and includes many small SQL queries that administrators run every day.

As a Galaxy administrator, you can use it to do things like viewing the queue:

$ gxadmin query queue tool_id | state | count -------------------------------------------------------------------+---------+------- | queued | 9 | running | 7 | queued | 6 ebi_sra_main | running | 6 | queued | 5

amongst many more queries. We hope that other administrators will find this utility useful and can contribute queries that they run often.
