Default Memory problems with MosaikAligner 1.0.1307 (removed -km and -pm)


There was an option in "old" MosaikAligner to load the keys-file, and/or positions-file into the memory by using "-km" and "-pm" from a reference jump database. I was never able to load both into memory due to lack of sufficient RAM, (loaded just the keys-file). This features are now removed in "new" MosaikAligner, and I am not able to aligne with my new jump-database.

Are there any tricks besides upgrading the hardware to get around this problem?

Error message:
MosaikAligner 1.0.1307                                              2009-10-14

- Using the following alignment algorithm: all positions
- Using the following alignment mode: aligning reads to all possible locations
- Using a maximum mismatch threshold of 6
- Using a hash size of 15
- Aligning in colorspace (SOLiD)
- Using 4 processors
- Using an alignment candidate threshold of 25bp.
- Setting hash position threshold to 100
- Using a jump database for hashing. Storing keys & positions in memory.
- loading basespace reference sequences... finished.
