    Hi Yangyxt,

    It is not possible to run the same GenomicsDBImport command on the same workspace, this will lead to issues. We also do not recommend running GenotypeGVCFs while GenomicsDBImport is running. So you should not have multiple jobs running at once accessing the same GenomicsDB workspace.

    If you are looking to parallelize the import by interval, you can use the --batch-size parameter and the --max-num-intervals-to-import-in-parallel [More information in the GenomicsDBImport docs].
