I am still not sure how to fix the > problem, though! I haven't seen this error before in the context of summarizeOverlaps, so it's a bit puzzling. I'd first check that the fls <- list.files("../../bam/", pattern="fox-readgroups.bam$", full.names=T) all point to valid bam files, and the bam files have indexes. You might then try adding a 'yieldSize' argument to the following line, starting small (e.g., 100000) and moving toward the default (1000000) if the small size works when calling summarizeOverlaps, or perhaps smaller if it fails. bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=100000) Can you provide a little information about your system? It sounds like it's your own machine, not a server. How much memory? Probably you'd get a different outcome with a more recent R / Bioconductor, but I'm not sure whether the error would go away! I have a sense that the problem with package manager installation is that they or you end up installing non-default packages into a single system directory, and as a consequence the directory contains a mix of different Bioconductor releases. A 'better practice' is probably to a) remove any existing system-wide R installation and packages b) install R with only base packages as su, or (as I do) install R as a regular user (not su) in version-specific directories in your own user file system, e.g., ~mtmorgan/bin/R-3-1-branch/ c) install any additional packages, via biocLite or otherwise, as a regular user, following R's prompt to create a version-specific directory in your own user hierarchy. Obviously this can be a rats nest of problems, and should only be done immediately before a big deadline or when you are feeling too productive and need to scale back ;) Martin > > sessionInfo() output: > > R version 3.0.2 (2013-09-25) > Platform: x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu (64-bit) > > locale: > [1] LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 LC_NUMERIC=C > [3] LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8 > [5] LC_MONETARY=en_US.UTF-8 LC_MESSAGES=en_US.UTF-8 > [7] LC_PAPER=en_US.UTF-8 LC_NAME=C > [9] LC_ADDRESS=C LC_TELEPHONE=C > [11] LC_MEASUREMENT=en_US.UTF-8 LC_IDENTIFICATION=C > > attached base packages: > [1] parallel stats graphics grDevices utils datasets methods > [8] base > > other attached packages: > [1] leeBamViews_0.99.24 > [2] BSgenome_1.30.0 > [3] Rsamtools_1.14.3 > [4] Biostrings_2.30.1 > [5] TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg19.knownGene_2.10.1 > [6] GenomicFeatures_1.14.5 > [7] AnnotationDbi_1.24.0 > [8] Biobase_2.22.0 > [9] GenomicRanges_1.14.4 > [10] XVector_0.2.0 > [11] IRanges_1.20.7 > [12] BiocGenerics_0.8.0 > > loaded via a namespace (and not attached): > [1] biomaRt_2.18.0 bitops_1.0-6 DBI_0.2-7 RCurl_1.95-4.1 > [5] RSQLite_0.11.4 rtracklayer_1.22.7 stats4_3.0.2 tools_3.0.2 > [9] XML_3.98-1.1 zlibbioc_1.8.0 > > ...and I should have remembered that I am using an older version of R.

I indexed the BAMs and then it was happy. Sample BAM filename: ../../bam/52_172-fox-readgroups.bam > You might then try adding a 'yieldSize' argument to the following line, > starting small (e.g., 100000) and moving toward the default (1000000) if > the small size works when calling summarizeOverlaps, or perhaps smaller > if it fails. > > bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=100000) Interesting -- that seems to have worked. The process is running much longer now, anyways, and I don't want to wait for it to finish because I suspect it might take hours. I'll try it again with a larger number once I'm sure it's exited successfully. yieldSize seems to have to do with the number of records it will process. It's only 24 BAM files so I'm not sure whether "records" means "files". Does "records" mean "reads"? > Can you provide a little information about your system?

I wonder about just installing the updated version locally so everyone else on the server (2 other people) can use the default version. I might try that. Leaving two versions scares me, of course.

Is 1000000 really the default? Because I can set yieldSize to much larger OR smaller than that and the command will succeed (or at least complete without errors). But when I do not specify yieldSize at all, there is an error! > bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=100000) > gnCnt <- summarizeOverlaps(exByGn, bamfls, mode="Union", + ignore.strand=TRUE, single.end=TRUE, param=param) > bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=500000) > gnCnt <- summarizeOverlaps(exByGn, bamfls, mode="Union", + ignore.strand=TRUE, single.end=TRUE, param=param) > bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=1000000) > gnCnt <- summarizeOverlaps(exByGn, bamfls, mode="Union", + ignore.strand=TRUE, single.end=TRUE, param=param) > bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=10000000) > gnCnt <- summarizeOverlaps(exByGn, bamfls, mode="Union", + ignore.strand=TRUE, single.end=TRUE, param=param) > bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=1000000000) > gnCnt <- summarizeOverlaps(exByGn, bamfls, mode="Union", + ignore.strand=TRUE, single.end=TRUE, param=param) BUT: > bamfls <- BamFileList(fls) > gnCnt <- summarizeOverlaps(exByGn, bamfls, mode="Union", + ignore.strand=TRUE, single.end=TRUE, param=param) Error: C stack usage is too close to the limit ?!

But when I do not specify yieldSize at all, > there is an error! Ok, I guess I did not remember correctly. If the function is passed a BamFile / BamFileList, it respects the yieldSize in the File / List. If yieldSize is not specified, then it'll try to read the entire file into memory. And hilarity ensues. If passed a character vector of file paths (I think this is supported in your version) then summarizeOverlaps will set the default yieldSize to 1000000. So yes, create the BamFileList with an appropriate yieldSize. From your earlier email, yieldSize refers to the number of reads read in at one time. In terms of appropriate yieldSize, summarizeOverlaps will iterate through individual bam files using yieldSize, and simultaneously use parallel (hence for you mc.cores, which by default is just 2 but can be set using options(mc.cores=8) or whatever; more recent versions use BiocParallel and register(MulticoreParam())) evaluation to process several bam files at once. So for optimal performance you want to choose a yieldSize such that all cores (or as many as being neighbourly dictates) are in use but not too much memory is being consumed. If you do decide to update your R, summarizeOverlaps has moved to GenomicAlignments.

Hi Martin, do you think there is a reasonable case for dividing the yield size by the number of simultaneous processes? That way the yield size would represent the total number of reads yielded across all processes at any given time. -Ryan On May 20, 2014 2:26 PM, "Martin Morgan" <mtmorgan@fhcrc.org> wrote: > On 05/20/2014 01:37 PM, Jessica Perry Hekman wrote: > >> On 05/20/2014 02:20 PM, Jessica Perry Hekman wrote: >> >>> Error: C stack usage is too close to the limit >>>>> >>>> >> You might then try adding a 'yieldSize' argument to the following line, >>>> starting small (e.g., 100000) and moving toward the default (1000000) if >>>> the small size works when calling summarizeOverlaps, or perhaps smaller >>>> if it fails. >>>> >>>> bamfls <- BamFileList(fls, yieldSize=100000) >>>> >>> >> So, this is perplexing.

So I figured if I was going to be having this much trouble I might as well be on the latest R in case that helped. So I upgraded to 3.1.0 and the latest Bioconductor.

In this case, my best guess was that the message is saying that I got the signature of the method wrong -- but when I tried changing my arguments, I got a message saying "no method matches that signature," so I conclude that that's not the problem.

Can you provide the output of traceback() after the error occurs? This will help isolate where in the code things are going wrong. Also on your own end and if you're feeling adventurous you could try to do options(error=recover) and then when the error occurs you'll get a 'backtrace' of the function calls that are in effect when error occurs; you can select the call that seems most helpful (this can be a bit of an art, and requires some overall knowledge of the code). This brings you in to the '?browser' and you can look around to figure out in more detail what the data looks like that causes the error. Here's an artificial example: f <- function(x) log(x) g <- function(x) f(as.character(x)) h <- function(x) g(x) and an error > h(1) Error in log(x) : non-numeric argument to mathematical function that we can understand how we got from where we invoked the call h(1) to where the error occurred > traceback() 3: f(as.character(x)) 2: g(x) 1: h(1) We could then look at f, say > f function (x) log(x) and not really understand what the problem was, so try to look at the value of 'x' when we get to f > options(error=recover) > h("1") Error in log(x) : non-numeric argument to mathematical function Enter a frame number, or 0 to exit 1: h("1") 2: g(x) 3: f(as.character(x)) Selection: 3 Called from: g(x) Browse[1]> ls() [1] "x" Browse[1]> x [1] "1" Browse[1]> ah, the variable 'x' is somehow a character vector, and that's causing problems as we can confirm Browse[1]> log(x) Error during wrapup: non-numeric argument to mathematical function We can get back out of the browser and the recover function, and reset options with Browse[1]> Q > options(error=NULL) Like in this example, the problem is often up-stream of where the error occurred, and I guess that's where the art comes in -- to understand the code enough to see where the problem is, and to trace the issue to the origin. Anyway, if you provide traceback() that'll give me a better start on understanding your problem.
