Not to generate final svdiscovery.dels.vcf

SyedSyed IndiaMember

Hi All,

I was running
java -Xmx16g -cp ${classpath} \
org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.QCommandLine \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/SVDiscovery.q \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/SVQScript.q \
-cp ${classpath} \
-gatk ${SV_DIR}/lib/gatk/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \
-configFile ${SV_DIR}/conf/genstrip_parameters.txt \
-R /gpfs/projects/ref_data/reference/Homo_sapiens/ncbi/hs37d5/hs37d5.fa \
-I ../../CMT-5_S1_L001.sorted.bam \
-genderMapFile testInputs/gendarMap.txt \
-md output_metadata_directory \
-runDirectory run1_SVDiscovery \
-jobLogDir run1_SVDiscovery/logs \
-O run1_SVDiscovery/svdiscovery.dels.vcf \
-minimumSize 100 \
-maximumSize 100000 \

and I was able to generate files like P0001.discovery.vcf.gz upto P0086.discovery.vcf.gz in this folder run1_SVDiscovery but didn't able to get final output file. Can some one let me know what would be the possible issue ?

Below is last few lines of logs file and I am not sure about any possible reason for not getting final SVDiscovery files.

    You need to look in the log file for the job that failed:
    If it appears to be a transient error (disk full, random I/O error) you can rerun the top level script which will just retry the failed job.
