Bug report -submitting job block without tasks crashes server process

Hi Timur, You may already be aware of this one. If a job is submitted with no tasks in a block, it causes the server to immediately crash. The error log reports: AFERROR: JobProgress::JobProgress: Invalid number of tasks = 0 (m_job_id=0,block=0) Server starts up again perfectly fine after. Best, Bele

Re: Job solving order - complete one task before starting next

Hey, cheers for the help with this! So, I don't have much experience with the branching setup, so here's a couple of screenshots how they are right now on a testing installation: Priotity2.png Priotity1.png So at the moment, there's a single branch, with both tasks in, from a single user, but the ca...

Job solving order - complete one task before starting next

Hey Timur, I've been reading the docs, and a couple of threads on here like "http://forum.cgru.info/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=119" but I can't quite find the answer on possibilities Currently the (default?) setup will distribute capacity across all jobs and users until they complete. I'm looking to have ...

Re: Restrict system block commands to server

These are definately not waking up, I've also set af_wolwake_interval to 1, just incase. There aren't any wake-on-lan jobs being spawned into the system job queue, if that's relevant? Can't see any error in the logs (other than the JSON ones we spoke about a number of weeks ago.) What are the criter...

Re: Restrict system block commands to server

One small point- how do I enable AF to automatically wake render nodes when needed?
I've read mentions of the capability of AF "Deciding" to wake nodes, but not sure how. Waking manually is working great!

Thanks!

Re: Restrict system block commands to server

Solved! I've set up extra patterns in the farm.json file:
global defaults set without any services
new group with regex mask for all render nodes - has all services except wol
new group with server in it, has only the wol service.

I love the control of Afanasy once you get your head around it!

Restrict system block commands to server

I've got a configuration challenge I'm not sure how to approach. Currently the wake-on-lan task blocks are ran by any render node, Is this possible to run from the server instead? either through a configuration change, or setting the server up as a render node only taking wake-on-lan type jobs? Our ...
