Hello all, I have been trying to convert a large vcf file to GESTE_BAYE_SCAN format using PGDSpider. I have tried doing a straight conversion and also a two-step: vcf > PGD > GEST_BAYE_SCAN. The first step works. Hoever every time I try to produce the BayeScn file I get this error: ERROR 20-05 11:11:57,272 ( -not enough memory. To increase the allowed memory see help.

I even took of the min max memory when I ran the line of code, as so: java -jar ~/bin/PGDSpider_2.1.1.5/PGDSpider2-cli.jar -inputfile ./PA_etcGBS_PGD -inputformat PGD -outputfile ./PA_etcGBS_GESTEBayeScn -outputformat GESTE_BAYE_SCAN -spid ./files/spid/PGD_to_GESTE_BAYE_SCAN.spid

Does anynone have any alternatives to PGDSpider for file conversion? Or any sugestion how I make this work? I can send you my settings in the .spid file if that is useful just let me know.

Thanks for your help in adavance, Eve

Were you ever able to figure out a workaround on this? Even when I max out the available memory on my server (512GB), the program isn't able to successfully write an output file.

You can try to increase memory limits by running PGDSpider with java -jar -Xmx8g -jar .... In this case the -Xmx will increase the max memory usage to 8Gb. You can adjust to your limits and/or needs.
