HaplotypeCaller crash with multithreading + SSE

johnwallace123johnwallace123 ✭✭Member ✭✭

I recently ran the HaplotypeCaller using both the new --pairHMM options and -nct 2, and I encountered a crash in the program (8 of 96 runs crashed). I have rerun the analysis without the "-nct 2" option, and it appears to work as expected, so I'm not in a hurry. I am currently using GATK 3.1-1; below is the specific command I used as well as the stack trace that resulted.

GenomeAnalysisTK -T HaplotypeCaller -R human_g1k_v37_decoy.fasta -I [email protected] --dbsnp dbsnp_137.b37.vcf.gz -L targets.GRCh37.bed -A QualByDepth -stand_emit_conf 10 -mbq 20 --downsample_to_coverage 300 -A HaplotypeScore -A MappingQualityRankSumTest -A ReadPosRankSumTest -A FisherStrand -A GCContent -A AlleleBalanceBySample -A AlleleBalance -o HG00593.vcf.gz -sample_rename_mapping_file rename_file -nct 2 -ERC GVCF -pairHMM VECTOR_LOGLESS_CACHING -variant_index_type LINEAR -variant_index_parameter 128000
