AWS Snowball GC overhead limit exceedes

0 votes

I tried to send 5TB of data to S3 through AWS snowball service. I've received the snowball, and have connected to it through the snowball client. However, when I call the snowball cp command to copy files from the local server onto the snowball there comes few issues. The cp command starts out fine but then stops, followed by an error:

in thread "nioEventLoopGroup-2-45" Exception in thread "nioEventLoopGroup-2-12" Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded

I'm connecting to the snowball on a Linux machine and running the command as below

bash snowball cp -r - f -l /path/to/the/archive/on/the/server s3://jobname/directory

What do I do now? Any way out? Any help? Much appreciated.

There is an intensive background Java program which is interfering with the transfer. After the program is finished the cp command will start to work without any errors.
