Task has not started

I'm hoping that i'm missing something obvious so please don't hesitate to point and laugh at me. :D I submitted a job which simply sits there saying: ERROR: Task is not started. The hostmask seems legit, the capacity seems fine, the service is available on the targeted nodes, but for some reason it'...

services claiming two types of tokens?

Is it possible for a service to claim two tokens from the farm?
for example, an hscript job that writes .psproxy files will require both a houdini engine license, and a redshift license.

Thoughts?

Re: prefer blocks

Ha! per machine priority is a lovely solution in this case... Thanks Timur, I hadn't thought of that. As you can imagine, sometimes, when we are doing CPU renders (on the same machine groups) we'd want the big multi CPU machines to have higher priority. Would you considers per-block machine prioriti...

Re: prefer blocks

I'm glad to hear this is on your radar. As most facilities (I imagine) we have a growing pool of (multi-gpu) GPU boxes some of which end up sitting idle if jobs get dispatched to the (much less desirable) workstations since they contain fewer GPUs. I would still like to be able to utilize ALL the av...

Re: prefer blocks

I'm not sure I follow, Timur, Given the following hostmask setup: workstation machines: lws[01-10] renderblock b machines: rb[01-10] renderblock c machines: rc[01-10] video card block machines: rz[01-10] I submit a job to hostmask: 'rz..|lws..'. How would I signal the dispatcher to fill all the rz m...

prefer blocks

I would love to be able to have the dispatcher prefer certain machines when allocating jobs. For instance, always prefer renderfarm machines over workstations, etc.

Is this possible?

Re: CGRU is too fair!

You can up the user's priority.

Seems to act more or less god-like here when set to 255.

change hostmasks per block

Would love to be able to modify a running job's hostmask on a perblock basis.

ie: change hostmask of running jobs per block.

Re: resolving job names after submit

I hear you -- but it does introduce a strange condition. job1.name = "job1" job1.block1.name = "foo" job1.block2.name = "bar" job1.block2.dependMask = "foo*" job2.name = "job1-1" job2.block1.name = "foo" job2.block2.name = "bar" job2.block2.dependMask = "foo*" if both jobs are running at the same ti...
