Farm Monitoring Tools - a.k.a. "The Herder"
In-house developed interface to monitor the renderfarm and it's machines from a workstation.
*As seen on Siggraph 2014 - Toronto, presented by Thinkbox Software*
This tool gives an instant overview of a (small) renderfarm on the desktop.
It shows the hardware & render state of multiple machines and provides
relevant information about the renderfarm and it’s running jobs.
A big thanks goes out to Johan boekhoven for helping with the Python scripts that make this tool possible.
And to Thinkbox for providing support and Deadline beta's
to do list
- Slave version with deadline information only (no need to install OHM)
- Pool version similar to the Farm version
