Re: Afserver crashes

For the record, I'm also seeing afserver (2.2.1) crashing from time to time for no obvious reason, whereas 2.1.0 seemed rock solid. Don't have a stack trace though...

Re: Add new role, no only VISOR and GOD?

Or just allow all users to see all jobs but hide others by default? Similar to the 'hidden' filter.

Re: Add new role, no only VISOR and GOD?

I actually have more or less the same demand/request. Perhaps we could make a button/option in afwatch to show all jobs?

Our supervisors/producers usually wants to see progress of artists renders, but don't need any permissions.

Rename "Render" to something else

This is something which is confusing new users of Afanasy (atleast on my end). "Render" is usually refering to an output of a "Render job/task". Deadline : "Slave" Qube : "Worker" Tractor : "Blade" RoyalRender : "Client" Render Pal : "Client" Smedge : "Engine" Flamenco : "Worker" Backburner : "Serve...

Re: Render Pools

Coming from RR with it's pool/group setup I absolutely love the more dynamic nature of afanasy. IMHO thinking in "Render Pools" is an old way of managing it, whereas services, capacity, licenses and power is much better. Another option is to autogenerate capacity and power. Eg. capacity = memory pow...
