Question / Feature Request: Host performance metadata
« on: August 02, 2010, 07:30:07 PM »
Is there a way to define additional metadata for each host in qbwork.conf and then have that show up in a sortable column in Host/Worker Layout?   I'd like to be able to define various benchmarks per host so a user could select the fastest one for jobs with single or only a handful of frames...but which take a long time to render on a per-frame basis.

Or, even better, to have define an ordered list on the supe so that for a given job type, the supervisor would know which host is fastest.

You could add host.[some_name]=[some_val] to the host.properties and/or host.resources, but these won't be available as a separate column in the qubeGUI.

You can then use these values in the job's hostorder field.  I'm going to refer you to the Qube Users' Guide for more information on using the job's hostorder attribute.
