HaplotypeCaller is taking a long time to start

David_LJDavid_LJ BielefeldMember

Hello GATK team!

I'm running HalpotypeCaller on two different bam files at the same time (193 and 804 Mb big) that are coordinate sorted and with Read Groups information. The reference (for which I created an index and a dictionary) is the same for the two files and it's 1.8 Gb.

I start my HaplotypeCaller runs 3 days ago (with default values) and they are not progressing. Specifically they are both still at this stage:

Any idea of why it is not proceding? (I am not using the latest GATK version because I'm currently trying to reproduce some analysis made using an older version).

Thanks a lot,
