Question: My run failed and didn't automatically generate the mri.tgz file that 10x support generally asks for. Can I generate this file manually?
Answer: Yes. All 10x Genomics software tools have a utility called
tarmri, which can be called through the pipeline tool you are using - for Cell Ranger type
cellranger tarmri, for Supernova type
supernova tarmri, etc. To use
tarmri to generate a .mri.tgz file for a failed run, call
tarmri and give it the path to the failed pipestance. The tar.mri file contains a number of logs (including error messages, status reports, and information about the system) that are useful for trouble-shooting failures. The .mri.tgz file does not contain sequence data or analysis outputs.

The pipestance is the directory created by any given 10x pipeline based on the value of the
