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.
