FasataAlternateReferenceMaker error

I get an error "could not reserve enough space for object heap, could not create the Java Virtual Machine" when running FastaAlternateReferenceMaker . I have 25Gb of free disk space. How can I solve this problem?

    This sounds like a problem with your java configuration; you should ask your sysadmin/IT for help.

    Note that we only provide support for running GATK on POSIX systems (MacOSX/Unix/Linux/etc.). If you're running on Windows you may encounter issues that we are unable to help you with.

    Good luck!
