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?
