Job Submission Strategy
« on: February 18, 2010, 02:54:26 AM »
An informal query to anyone who wants to chip in;

What's the best solution you find for distribution of jobs in your renderfarm? Our farm usually has five or six jobs running simultaneously, and several queued to go in sequence (usually by shot file, per render layer RiB archive). Our farm has 60 nodes assigned to groups of 30, 15, 10 and 5. Usually I stack a job to hit nodes by the 10s, with the render layers (usually 4 layers) assigned to a trio of 10s, with one job dependent on another.

I'm curious to hear, though, what are your approaches?
