    Thank you for providing such a great tool. I'm sorry for leaving a basic question.

    Why is the value corresponding to MAX_INSERT_SIZE in the results.txt
    not included in the HISTOGRAM's insert_size?

    For example, in my results, I could see that the value of MAX_INSERT_SIZE in the ##METRICS CLASS was 246870184, but in the ##HISTOGRAM, the insert_size only showed from 2 to 1116.
