Dennis Teusink (Teus) added a comment to T54099: Force GPU rendering python script.

Also only use mapped network drives (so S:/ instead of rackstation/software), as means something else to Blender. That, and of course T60131 should be fixed.

Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) added a comment to T54099: Force GPU rendering python script.

I recommend not using any exclamation marks in your path, and only using mapped network drives (so S:/ instead of //rackstation/software). That, and of course T60131 should be fixed.

Please make sure that you have the latest Blender Cloud add-on 1.11.0 (just released) as it contains Windows and Blender 2.8 fixes. If you still see issues, please provide us with a proper bug report.

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.

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?

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.

@Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) I previously haven't had a chance to test this script properly. For now we are working with Backburner as our main render farm tool. We would like to use Flamenco though. But it is not very compatible with our Windows network. Everytime we try to work with Flamenco we run into strange issues.

Pascal (Pascalito) added a comment to T58084: Flamenco Manager crashes after one hour on Windows.

I tried last night with a render. I started Flamenco Manager using cmd.exe and with the - verbose command.
The manager didn't crash and worked perfectly all night long.

I've tried running Flamenco Manager on Windows 10 for close to 7 hours, and it keeps running just fine. It has one Worker connected to it, so it does get frequent polls for more tasks.

Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) added a comment to T58084: Flamenco Manager crashes after one hour on Windows.

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.
