hi, I tried using a VCF DPC tool to a data from my history. When I run the tool I get the error message that: Error: cannot allocate vector of size 4.9 Gb Execution halted


I have no idea what I should do to fix it. I have tried a lot of things and no luck. I would appreciate any help.

It sounds like the tool is running out of resource. Click on the green bug icon to see if the full error message indicates this. You do not need to submit bugs that are explained in the wiki (see below) - but can still always use the green bug icon to investigate errors. Should the error remain unclear, please go ahead and submit the bug report along with a link to this post for more feedback.

Section 2.8 of the Galaxy support wiki explains alternatives for working with data/jobs that exceed the compute resources at

Thanks for using Galaxy, Jen, Galaxy team
