Randomness in .vcf.idx output of GATK IndexFeatureFile
When I run GATK IndexFeatureFile for the same .vcf from two different locations I get two different .idx files.
Why this randomness exists and is it necessary? I suppose it adds .vcf path or command line to it. Is it possible somehow to eliminate the randomness?
