Joel Howe (jhowe) added a comment to T65726: Flamenco render job submission fails.

D:/ is a local physical data drive on my main Win 10 workstation.
R:/ is the Flamenco project.
R:/ is a network mapped folder location to D:/Flamenco, so in the case of submitting the job, R:/ points to the same hard drive. R:/ was created using Windows "Map network drive", which I don't believe allows you to specify a protocol.
All Flamenco workers have an R:/ mapped back to my workstation, which is also running Flamenco manager.
Inside R:/ are three folders:

It would also help to know the layout of your files. What directory is set as the project directory? You're using drive R:, is that a network drive (if so, which protocol?) or a local disk?

I have been able to successfully submit to Flamenco a version of the file that has the object with an Ocean modifier, but only when the Cache path for that modifier was empty.

Joel Howe (jhowe) added a comment to T65726: Flamenco render job submission fails.

Adding a sound file to the sequencer in an empty .blend file was enough to reproduce the error for me, but I am attaching this actual file. This file has the proprietary elements removed, including the WAV file in the sequencer. To get this to submit to Flamenco without error, I have to delete the WAV audio and both the Alembic fluid surface and the Ocean modifier fluid surface.

Michael Dingwall (macgeek21) added a comment to T60116: Edit/override job parameters that affect job compilation.

I was looking into something like this for the create-video task in the blender-render job compiler for the server. I want to be able to set the ffmpeg arguments that are being used to create the resulting video. As I was digging into this, I thought that using a variable override in the manager, similar to the path override for ffmpeg, could allow for at least making the output file an MP4 vs MKV. Is this barking up the wrong tree?

@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...)

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):

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.

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?
