Warning 1: TIFFReadDirectory:Sum of Photometric type-related color channels and ExtraSamples doesn't match SamplesPerPixel

Hey All,

I have a job that is stuck again, I have several thousand lines in my log file that is repeating the same line of text:

‘Warning 1: TIFFReadDirectory:Sum of Photometric type-related color channels and ExtraSamples doesn’t match SamplesPerPixel. Defining non-color channels as ExtraSamples.’

I’m not sure if the job is done or stalled on something. In the zip file linked below, I’ve included the full console.txt file and the full image data set.

Here’s a screenshot of what I have been seeing for some time now:

I’m hoping that someone may help me get to the bottom of why these jobs aren’t running.

  1. Search the forum to see if this problem happened to other users.
  2. Check Issues · OpenDroneMap/ODM · GitHub and Issues · OpenDroneMap/WebODM · GitHub for similar problems.

A quick search didn’t show this exact problem…

Here are my server system specs:

Operating system: Ubuntu Linux 16.04.6
Kernel and CPU: Linux 4.15.0-112-generic on x86_64
Processor information: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630 v2 @ 2.60GHz, 24 cores
System uptime: 4 days, 13 hours, 22 minutes|
Real memory: 4.44 GiB used / 125.77 GiB cached / 188.84 GiB total
Virtual memory: 0 bytes used / 976.99 MiB total
Local disk space: 1.15 TiB used / 6.96 TiB free / 8.11 TiB total

  1. Include a link to your images!

  2. Copy/paste the entire task output (not just parts of it) for everyone to read.
    The entire log file is included in the zipfile above

  3. Did you fine tune any parameters? Which ones?
    Options: fast-orthophoto: true, rerun-from: odm_report

  4. If applicable, what browser are you using? Google Chrome
    What operating system? Windows 10 pro on client-side.
    WebODM is Ubuntu 16.4, Native install
    NodeODM installed via Docker
    How did you install the software? Be precise. See Full reinstall - local processing node offline - #12 by kconley

I’ve resolved this by abandoning the Ubuntu 16.04 native install and went with Ubuntu Server w/ docker. I’m finally getting tasks to finish.
