Greetings, all!

We have discovered that the supervisor DB migration process from Qube 6.x to 7.x, from MySQL to PostgreSQL, can fail if the Qube 6.x supervisor has gone through upgrades.

We have patched the export_data_from_mysql.py script, and also added an additional required SQL script, fix_mysql_column_orders.sql, and made them available
for download on our "db_migration_tools" download page at http://repo.pipelinefx.com/downloads/pub/db_migration_tools/ .

If you're having difficulty importing the data into PostgreSQL, please (re-)download both of these files and start over with the updated instructions available at:
http://docs.pipelinefx.com/display/QUBE/Transferring+data+from+MySQL+to+PostgreSQL

General / Re: Arnold frame progress
« Last post by Kevin MacPhail on November 20, 2018, 12:02:52 AM »
Hi Eric,

If you look at another job submission like the "Aerender (AppFinder) Job" you might be able to reverse engineer it.  To pull the progress of "3" from a line like:

PROGRESS: 00003 (3): 2 Seconds

...it uses a regex_progress that looks like:

'^PROGRESS:.*\((\d+)\): \d+ Seconds'

If you need more help with this please feel free to open a support ticket and we will help you out.

Cheers,

-Kevin

For Qube 7.0-2c, Perl v5.26 is the only supported version on Windows, and must be installed on
all workers. All other versions of Perl are unsupported.

General / Arnold frame progress
« Last post by ericcunha on November 19, 2018, 11:25:21 PM »
Hey everybody,

I'm fairly new to Qube but am in the process of automating some things for a studio I'm at right now. One thing I can't seem to figure out is how to output the Arnold frame progress to the stdout log. Has anyone had any luck with this?

I've tried typing in something like ".*% done" in the regex_progress field on the submit dialog, since Arnold outputs the progress like so:
00:00:15   937MB         |     5% done - 38 rays/pixel
00:00:16   938MB         |    10% done - 21 rays/pixel
00:00:16   938MB         |    15% done - 50 rays/pixel

Unfortunately, this didn't seem to do anything. Is this just the wrong regex to type in? Do I need to do something else?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Today we have released the 7.0-2a maintenance or patch version of 7.0-2 for Qube!.  This is a supervisor-only release that includes a few key fixes, and is recommended for any site currently using a 7.0-x supervisor.

The highlights from those fixes are as follows:
  • timeout value set via the API routine qbsettimeout() now respected more accurately
  • race-condition can dispatch the same agenda item to multiple instances
  • "running_monitor" background thread/routine would sometimes try to verify instance-worker combinations that don't exist in reality (and sometimes even non-existent instances), then put those instances back to "pending".
  • supervisor install fails on Windows where .py files are not associated with the python interpreter
  • supervisor fails to register dependencies of some jobs at submission, due to DB ERROR: duplicate key value

Announcements / Maintenance/Patch Release 7.0-1d of Qube! Now Available
« Last post by jburk on August 07, 2018, 07:11:15 PM »
This morning we released the 7.0-1d maintenance or patch version of 7.0-1 for Qube!.  The changes are limited to ArtistView and the Data Relay Agent, and so customers already running Qube 7.0-1c should only find upgrading to be necessary if they are impacted by one of the issues listed below.

7.0-1d provides fixes which will be of interest to customers running ArtistView with Qube 7. The highlights from those fixes are as follows:
  • in-app submission UI's are not pre-populated
  • Adobe AfterEffects movie format comps are not submitted as a single-partition job
  • @FIX: Adobe AfterEffects JSON submission files are not deleted after submission

The changes to the Data Relay Agent are limited to the installation process:
  • DRA installation does not update older dra.conf config file which is still using v6 parameters
