Hi.
You also should see afserver and afrender processes stdout.

Hi.
To see afrender stdout you can run afrender from cmd.exe, for example.
  • Run cmd.exe.
  • Go to cgru root folder

    Code: Select all

    cd [CGRU ROOT FODLER]
  • Setup cgru environment

    Code: Select all

    call setup.cmd

Hi.
There is a network connection problem periodically on your farm.
Try to increase connection lost time
https://github.com/CGRU/cgru/blob/maste ... .json#L129
For example from 10s to 30s, or even 60s.

PS
If you are using Blender, why not to use Linux on farm?
There are always less network and other problems on Linux.
I never heard about big farms on Windows.

thank you for help.
later i will try to increase connection lost time.
but for now I'm using a batch script to check every 15 minutes. if afrender still running. and restart if not.

at first we did not have a plan to make a large render farm, only 5 to 10 farms.
but I don't know how suddenly it became very big.
next we do have plans to switch to Linux, maybe after the holidays.

any advice good distro may be?

I am using Ubuntu LTS for a long time.
Now it is Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS.
You can see what i am using in my signature.
Better if everyone will have such signature, to not to specify/ask version and OS every time.
