Queue with LSF v8.3?

wxingwxing Member Posts: 6


I am testing queue scripts with new installed LSF v8.3. The test script is:

java -jar jar2216/Queue.jar -S Queue-2.2-16-g9f648cb/resources/ExampleCountReads.scala -R Queue-2.2-16-g9f648cb/resources/exampleFASTA.fasta -I Queue-2.2-16-g9f648cb/resources/exampleBAM.bam --bsub -run

where I get error message as follows:

'java' '-Xmx1024m' '-XX:+UseParallelOldGC' '-XX:ParallelGCThreads=4' '-XX:GCTimeLimit=50' '-XX:GCHeapFreeLimit=10' '' '-cp' '/data/cmb/wxing/gatk/jar2216/Queue.jar' 'org.broadinstitute.sting.gatk.
CommandLineGATK' '-T' 'CountReads' '-I' '/data/cmb/wxing/gatk/Queue-2.2-16-g9f648cb/resources/exampleBAM.bam' '-R' '/data/cmb/wxing/gatk/Queue-2.2-16-g9f648cb/resources/exampleFASTA.fasta'

Any clues on the issue "java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Error looking up function 'ls_getLicenseUsage': /usr/local/lsf/8.3/linux2.6-glibc2.3-x86_64/lib/ ". Or anyone had similar problems?

Anyone think it could be the version of our LSF (v8.3) as the code seem based on version 706?

Many thanks, Wei

    It would be very useful if you could do this against our git repository, and issue a patch to us, so we can easily incorporate the functionality in future GATK releases.

    No problem. I will issue a patch to GATK git repo after I do QA tests (user cases) internally at ICR. Regards, Wei

    hi, is that possible that I can have the GATK 2.0 source code or I can have a bugfix version of GATK Queue.jar?

    I have the source from github of GATK Lite, bug-fix to enable the LSF v8.x, re-compile to have a bugfix new Queue.jar. However, just realized that it does not include the RedeuceReader.class...

    Thanks, Wei
