advanced rendering for AutoCAD
We've been working with nXt Render Farmer for sometime now and have noticed some weird things. Initially we had little to no issues with it outside normal fine tuning issues. I have however noticed since our tech decided to restructure the architecture of our server that larger renderings will bounce from farm node to farm node on the farm monitor and any calculations to produce completion time estimations might as well get thrown out the window (sometimes the rendering never resolves period). Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this (I've suggested to tech that it was the restructuring of the server architecture but they simply disregard this as they are "infallible"). I was in a dialogue with another department about this and things did not resolve the best as I am held responsible for the on-goings of renderings and the render farm.
Probably a node crash. If you can pin it down to a more specific model that's crashing we can try to test it to see if it's something at our end.
Will do what I can to see if I can isolate a model, I've got one drawing we were going to use in our digital catalog that ultimately has been bypassed due to it continually being problematic, I think it would be a good jumping off point for the isolation. File is too large to test as is, will keep you updated.
