I am attempting to convert a large src directory in mdapi format into source format. When I run "the sfdx force:mdapi:convert -r directoryToBeConverted -d directoryToCaptureConversion --loglevel FATAL" It get's hung up.
What's also giving me challenges is nothing is showing up in the $HOME/.sfdx/sfdx.log file when the conversion get's hung up.
I did some troubleshooting and removed the first half of the directory and performed the conversion and it worked. The secondhalf of the directory ended up hanging again so I am continueing to break things down to figure out which metadata type is causing the conversion to hang. From what I can tell right now, it seems to be the profile metadata type as it's size is 400 MB.
I can't share the exact directory so I apologize ahead of time. Thanks!
