Should I have a such huge size of cromwell-executions folder?
Dear Cromwell Team,
I was runing gatk4 best practice in my cPouta VM with docker (24Vcpu and 3T storage), (gatk4-data-preprocessing and germline-snps-indels) with NA12878_24_RG_small sample data.
After workflow finished, I found that my inputs folder size is just about 40Gib, while the size of my cromwell-executions folder is about 500 Gib. That is really huge and also when I tried to use normal NA12878 sample to run the workflow, it reported
no space on device.
Is it the right situation (get such a huge executions folder) or I did something wrong? I checked the executions folder, basically, it copied inputs for each task call, I think it is the main reason for getting such a huge size.
I did noticed many [warn]: Localization via hard link has failed. Is it the reason why cromwell copied inputs every time for every task call? How could I fix it?
