I am trying to load a bunch of pretty-heavy gff3 files to IGV. The machine is a Windows10 one, with 16GB RAM.
All gff files are zipped and indexed, but still loading the files kills IGV - it is just loading forever, unable to display anything.
I've tried reducing the visibility range to 20kb, but this simply resulted in IGV getting stuck when I zoom in.
I suspect that the issue is memory allocation. Is there a way to tell IGV to take up more memory? It looks like by default it only takes 1.2GB. Or any other idea on how to get this to work?
