Problem with cluster step

Hi everyone, while using cluster command with the dist. file ,the programme is showing the status “killed” after sometime. the final dist, file is 27.3 gb in size. Adding to this info, my system has 40 gb of RAM installed in it. what is the probable reason for this?

Can you try using the cluster.split approach outlined in the SOP? I think you’ll have better luck with that approach than this.
