I am facing a "fatal error by java runtime enviormnet" after using GATK DataProcessingPipeline,
my java version is

> java version "1.6.0_35"
> Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_35-b10)
> Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.10-b01, mixed mode)

and I am using GATK 2.3-6-gebbba25
The pipeline spit out the following error,

> lelOldGC'  '-XX:ParallelGCThreads=4'  '-XX:GCTimeLimit=50'  '-XX:GCHeapFreeLimit=10'  '-Djava.io.tmpdir=/medpop/mpg-psrl/Parabase/tmp'  '-cp' '/medpop/mpg-psrl/Parabase/Tools/Queue-2.3-5-g49ed93c/Queue.jar'  'org.broadinstitute.sting.gatk.CommandLineGATK'  '-T' 'RealignerTargetCreator'  '-I' '/medpop/mpg-psrl/Parabase/MyRuns/EX_c1004CARa_1ln_hg19._new.1.realigned.rg.bam'  '-R' '/medpop/mpg-psrl/Parabase/hg19/ucsc.hg19.fasta'  '-o' '/medpop/mpg-psrl/Parabase/MyRuns/EX_c1004CARa_1ln_hg19.EX_c1004CARa_1ln_hg19.intervals'  '-known' '/medpop/mpg-psrl/Parabase/hg19/dbsnp_137.hg19.vcf'  '-mismatch' '0.0'

the log file is lengthy; but If you like to have a look I can paste here it later on,
thanks for your support,

    I'm not certain, but I think I see errors like this when LSF kills my job (for, e.g., exceeding wall time)

    Yes, that looks like a problem in your server setup. Unfortunately that's not something we can help you with; I recommend you get support from your IT department to sort this out.

    Dear Geraldine_VdAuwera: I also get this error message when running the HaplotypeCaller. Everything else worked fine. What do you mean by a problem in your server setup? Could you be a bit more specific? Thank you very much!

    Hi @Juls,

    It's difficult to say, as this type of error is not directly related to GATK. You should consult your IT department about this, they will be able to help you much better than us.

    Hi @Geraldine_VdAuwera,

    Thank you for your answer!
    I've now upgraded java to the latest version, as this was suggested elsewhere for SIGSEGV errors. Now I get the following error (It occurs when executing the HaplotypeCaller) and I don't think this is a server setup problem (not that I know that much about java .. :)

    Ah, this is more our domain, yes :)

    This looks like a bug that was fixed in a more recent version -- can you update your GATK version to 2.6 and try again?
