GATK4-Alpha MarkDuplicates crashing

AmandaChamberlainAmandaChamberlain Agriculture VictoriaMember

I've used Picard2.1 MarkDuplicates for a bunch of bam files (4-40x coverage) generated with Picard2.1 MergeSamFiles and it works fine. I'm trying to get GATK4-Alpha MarkDuplicates working on the same data with bam files generated using GATK4-Alpha MergeSamFiles and it works fine for my lower coverage samples (4-5x) but anything greater than 8x is crashing. I get the following output

I used following command

java -Xmx80G -jar $GATK MarkDuplicates -I ${SAMPLE}.sorted.bam -O ${SAMPLE}_dedup.bam -M ${SAMPLE}_dedup.metrics --CREATE_INDEX true --VALIDATION_STRINGENCY LENIENT --O
PTICAL_DUPLICATE_PIXEL_DISTANCE 100

Can you provide any guidance on what is causing it to crash?

    Hi,

    There are responses in your original thread here. You don't have to post in different places; we try to answer every threads that comes through. If it takes a few days longer, it is because we are busier than usual.
