Long directory paths cause jobs to fail
Is there a config option to force cromwell to use shorter directory names? The extreme verbosity of the hashes used cause several job runners to fail
In my case, using a
torque/PBS back end, the runner complains about the directory arg being too long (256 characters +), causing the submitted job to fail.
There have already been reports of this being the case with other runners also (https://github.com/broadinstitute/cromwell/issues/4703)
Thanks for the info
