Warning problems

Hi, I am trying to launch some analysis using the BAnOCC package, but I am having some problems.

I am working at the ASVs level, with a dataset of 7 samples that after filtering ASVs, and retaining those that have a relative abundance > 10-4 in at least one of the samples, I am left with around 400-500 ASVs.

I have read the article and the tutorial. Arriving at these parameters:
b_fit ← banocc::run_banocc(C = input_reptop_skin_genus, compiled_banocc_model=compiled_banocc_model, chains = 4, cores = 4, iter = 5000, a = 0.5, b=10, verbose = TRUE).

Warning: There were 8 divergent transitions after warmup. See
https://mc-stan.org/misc/warnings.html#divergent-transitions-after-warmup
to find out why this is a problem and how to eliminate them.
Warning: Examine the pairs() plot to diagnose sampling problems

Warning: Bulk Effective Samples Size (ESS) is too low, indicating posterior means and medians may be unreliable.
Running the chains for more iterations may help. See
https://mc-stan.org/misc/warnings.html#bulk-ess
Begin fitting the model

Please, could you help me to fix those warnings and adjust the parameters properly? Thanks in advance.

You can set the control argument to adjust the Stan parameters to address these issues. control = list(adapt_delta = 0.9) should help address the divergent transitions (IIRC the default is 0.8). Even going up to 0.95 or 0.99 would be okay. Note that this will make the sampling exploration slower, so you may need to set warmup and and iter higher as well. That should help the ESS issues as well I think.

The links in the warning message should help you understand what these messages mean.
