Process Hangs and never completes

I updated the webodm 2 days ago with ODM 2.1.1 and I have a problem trying to process a medium size project with 328 images. It gets to the final step but hasn’t seemed to complete.

Build parameters:
	Span: 128
	Resolution 2D: 128 * 128 = 16,384
	Resolution 3D: 128 * 128 * 128 = 2,097,152
	Maximum node size: 65,536
	Minimum node size: 16,384
	Cache size: 64

Adding 0 - odm_georeferencing/odm_georeferenced_model.laz

	Pushes complete - joining...

and that is where is just sits and hasn’t seemed to complete. it took aprox 3 hrs to get this point then has run for almost 24 hrs since without finishing.
any ideas

Welcome! I hope we can get you up & running smoothly here soon.

Could you please provide further information about your processing environment, similar to how I’ve provided it here?

Could you provide information about RAM, storage, processor, etc.?

I’m going to bet that you ran out of RAM. If you’re fortunate, the process is still running via SWAP/paging, and might just take a very long time, if it didn’t get OOM’d.

I’ve been running out with similar specs (32GB, i7-6700k, 500gb drive) with lower mesh-size during the meshing phase.

What is the resolution of the imagery you’re processing?

5472x3648 is the original size
under diagnostics it shows it using 3.8 gig of ram atm. I can try lowering the settings and see how it turns out.
