How much memory should it require to run MergeVCFs on 2500 samples?

ekofmanekofman Member, Broadie

My MergeVCFs job is not outputting any logs on FireCloud, just sitting there for several days without finishing. We ran this sucessfully on 1200 samples with just 8 GB of RAM, so it's hard for me to imagine this is a memory issue. Is 2500 too much for MergeVCFs to handle?
