Re: Afserver crashes

This is a standard CentOS 6.6 with gcc 4.4.7

The valgrind and the crash backtrace are different. Will test more.

Re: Afserver crashes

Btw, we are using the latest version. Today I used Valgrind for the first time. Like this: valgrind --tool=memcheck --leak-check=yes afserver Is it normal for Valgrind to detect so much leaked memory even when there is no work and no render connected? ==28879== ==28879== HEAP SUMMARY: ==28879== in u...

Re: Afserver crashes

The server has 16GB of RAM and normally only 3-4GB are used for real. But the cached/buffered part was nearly maxing out the RAM when I checked the last time. But I think the Linux OS frees the cached part if is needed or not?

Re: Afserver crashes

Another question is:

Code: Select all

if( m_buffer == NULL )
as far as I know (and per http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/new/operator%20new[]/) the new operator never returns a NULL pointer. Why do you check it like this. Wouldn't it be good to use a try: catch: ??

Afserver crashes

Hello, we have crashes of the afserver from time to time. Maybe you can help with finding the cause. This is the backtrace: #0 0x0000003752432625 in raise () from /lib64/libc.so.6 #1 0x0000003752433e05 in abort () from /lib64/libc.so.6 #2 0x0000003752470537 in __libc_message () from /lib64/libc.so.6...

Re: mayapy crash

For the record, this is solved by setting the env var:

Code: Select all

MAYA_DISABLE_CIP=1

mayapy crash

I have a very weird issue. We run "afrender" at system startup via the service that comes with afanasy. When executing the following command with afrender started this way, the mayapy executable segfaults: /usr/autodesk/maya2016/bin/mayapy -c "import pymel.core;import os;os._exit(0)" When starting t...

Re: Render Pools

Works for me!

I think

{"farm_name_mask": "myfarm" }

job parameter has the least impact on the server code and the most positive effect for beginning users. Its just an alternative to the hostmask parm and may be used together or standalon. GUIs will then just show it next to the hostmask of a job.

Re: Render Pools

ok, yes, then it could make sense to have a

{"farmname_mask": "myfarm" }

parameter on the job, that is used when solving. I see how this can be helpful. The concept is much easier to grasp for normal artists.
