Dear GATK team,

I am trying to call somatic mutation by using best practice pipeline for somatic mutation calling. Almost all data was successfully called somatic mutation in VCF files. However, several files were failed to run on the way of pipeline. Here, I picked up to the error strings from logs. Do you have any suggestions why this problem was occurred?

1. gatk docker: broadinstitute/gatk, 123712a62f94
2. GATK: v4.0.8.1
3. openjdk version "1.8.0_191"
4. OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_191-8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1-b12)
5. OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.191-b12, mixed mode

See 'continueOnReturnCode' runtime attribute for more details. Check the content of stderr for potential additional information: /transient/suimye/181016LUAD/180207_singlerun/cromwell-executions/Mutect2/709e5b32-05c0-4e49-96b7-bc5c4ab56256/call-M2/shard-4/execution/stderr. Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS:

(There is no error information in /call-M2/shared-4/execution/stderr. The pipeline was stopped in the step "shard-4". I copied the last strings in the stderr file.)
