I am using STAR 2.5.3a on my system for aligning my Fasta sequences. THe command I used is

aasim@aasim-ProLiant-ML150-Gen9:~/Aasim/bin/STAR-2.5.3a/star_index$ STAR --runMode genomeGenerate --runThreadN 24 --genomeDir index --genomeFastaFiles Concatenate_master_assembly.fasta  --limitGenomeGenerateRAM=31000000000

IT gives me following error

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what():  std::bad_alloc

I tried to increase the values but throws tha same error.

There is a similar error on STAR's github. Do you have enough memory available?

cat /proc/meminfo

You allocate 31GB memory, but have only 30.5GB free.

You should stop other processes occupying Memory.

I cleared the cache, after that the memory status is

majeedaasim : Is this copy of STAR known to work on this server? Did you compile it or download a pre-compiled binary?

I just installed it with conda

These are mostly memory error. You should increase available memory for STAR.

I solved it by using the parameter

--genomeChrBinNbits = 11

The number here depends on the number of sacffolds/sequences and assembly size and is calculated by using the formula given in the manual as

min(18,log2[max(GenomeLength/NumberOfReferences,ReadLength)])
