advanced rendering for AutoCAD
You're probably fine and just experiencing an uneven workload (which happens sometimes.)
If you do want to do a little more troubleshooting, try disabling the computer running at 100% and see if the other machine shows improved numbers. (Do this in the Farm Monitor.) If it's still slow it probably merits some investigation-- the likely culprit is some sort of "clock thief" software running simultaneously.
BTW, as I'm sure you suspect, there is no "host" machine during a farm process. All machines are equal participants.
Ok, I'll try some other examples and see what happens.
Any idea why the -farmed version of the attached image has the carpet eating the casters? The -arnxt image was run non-farmed and didn't have this happen.
Right RE: the host business. I didn't know whether it had something to do with the first computer being the one where autocad was running.
Thanks for your help!
There's an open issue on the farm re: instanced (repeating) blocks. I never explored it in detail because it was too difficult to track down and I was waiting for more reports. Any chance I could get a copy of this? Upload it if you're willing. It's particularly relevant now since I'm working on cloud rendering which will use the same executable as the farm.
Slighty OT: I've had an occasion where all the RPC's rotate to the default insertion angle (o°) when rendered on the farm. They all show but are all facing the same direction. When rendered locally, all is well.
