Error when running SVCNVDiscovery in batch-like way: Read count cache file is truncated

Dear Genome STRiP users,

I am running SVCNVDiscovery process in a batch-like way. To be precisely, I have 3418 samples, and I divided them into 33 batches: the first 32 batches with 100 samples each and the 33th batch with 218 samples. Then I completed the SVPreprocess on each batch without any error. Next, I run SVCNVDiscovery on the each batch with the following script.

classpath="${SV_DIR}/lib/SVToolkit.jar:${SV_DIR}/lib/gatk/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar:${SV_DIR}/lib/gatk/Queue.jar"
svpreprocess_dir="/proj/yunligrp/users/minzhi/gs_test_svpreprocess_fulllist_batch_success/${1}"
rundir="/proj/yunligrp/users/minzhi/gs_test_svcnvdiscovery/${1}"

    -S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/discovery/cnv/CNVDiscoveryPipeline.q \

    -jobQueue general \
    -run \
    || exit 1

However, the 5th batch and the 24th batch always (always mean that I re-run more than 200 times to these two batches) fail with the error as below. And other batches completed without any error.

Besides, I tried other ways to run SVCNVDiscovery as below:
1. Completed SVPreprocess with regards to all 3418 samples, and running SVCNVDiscovery in the batch-like way (divided batches as above), but the same error happened also at 5th batch and the 24 batch.
2. Completed both of SVPreprocess and SVCNVDiscovery with regards to all 3418 samples, and there is no error in any of these processes.

May I have your suggestions of this situation?

Thank you very much.

Best regards,
Wusheng
