@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) : still have to make myself familiar with flamenco [I will have to do this for an upcoming studio job...].
beauty of the rule-based thingie was [iirc], that you could add something easily without having to touch existing code.
So in the case of netrender I added something like "Priority-frames" [frames to be rendered first] without too much hassle. (I think the rules could even be mixed per job, but I would need to have a look again, this was ages ago...)

Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) added a comment to T50977: Progressive render: use non-uniform sample chunks.

It's now implemented as a sub-quadratic curve (power of 1.6666) with an artist-given maximum number of samples per task. As an example, 400 total samples with a maximum of 100 per task gives these render tasks (first number is "rendering and merging up to this sample count", and second number is samples in only that task):

Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) added a comment to T60271: Log access on managers.

I wasn't thinking about encoding those as actual Tasks, but more as an extra payload in the same way we now also handle task cancellation requests. It would be just a list of job+task IDs to upload to the server. I'll have to think about it more to come up with a nice design that both works rapidly enough (when there are no workers asking for tasks, the Manager only infrequently polls that endpoint) and also doesn't load the server too much.

Jan 7 2019, 5:05 PM · Flamenco
Francesco Siddi (fsiddi) added a comment to T60271: Log access on managers.

So this would be a parallel queue of "tasks" that are accessible from the "dpsgraph/dispatch" endpoint.
The main difference is that they would be performed directly by the manager?
Could this system be also used for uploading render previews to the server, or should that be part of the job definition?

Jan 7 2019, 4:43 PM · Flamenco
Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) added a comment to T60271: Log access on managers.

We can have the Manager upload it to the Server on demand, for example by piggy-backing the 'depsgraph' endpoint the Manager uses to pull any changed tasks from the Server.

Can you start Flamenco Manager from a cmd.exe terminal? That way it stays open and you can read any error message. Start it with flamenco-manager.exe -verbose to get more verbose logging. If it turns out that that still doesn't give enough information we can use flamenco-manager.exe -debug to enable debug logging, but this will produce a rather copious amount of log messages.
