Qube launchs 8 3dsmax on my server
« on: August 24, 2007, 02:45:44 PM »
Hi
When I render with MR on 3dsmax, qube launch 8 3dsmax on my bi-quad servers workers.
How to fix that?

Most likely, you requested 8 "cpus" when you submitted the job. In Qube, a cpu is actually what we call a "subjob," which is typically an independent instance of the application, whether it is 3DS or Maya. If you want to take advantage of the distributed rendering capabilities of MR in Max, you should set them up in the render settings, then submit the job with only 1 cpu (subjob).

...Or submit with as many subjobs as you want but in your reservations for the job add:

host.processors=1+

This way, when a single subjob hogs your dual quad core it will only start one Max instance and reserve the whole machine for this single subjob.
