    Anyone have a recommended Autodesk Partner/Reseller in the Northern NJ/NYC area? Autodesk informed us that our previous one is no longer an "Authorized" Partner.

    Windows on HP ProLiant servers and number of logical cores
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Oct. 28, 2016, 8 p.m. (1 day ago)
    There's an obscure BIOS parameter on ProLiant servers which can cause some older Windows APIs to return only half the number of logical cores:

    http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=5379860&docId=emr_na-c04650594&docLocale=en_US

    In particular this shows up in the %NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS% environment variable being set wrong, and the Python psutil module.

    Unless you have 18 core CPUs, setting the BIOS parameter "NUMA Group Size Optimization" to "Flat" instead of "Clustered" will solve the problem.

    Turns out that HP has a useful PowerShell module for manipulating BIOS parameters:

    https://www.hpe.com/us/en/product-catalog/detail/pip.5440657.html#

    but unfortunately that particular param is not exposed through that module.

    Hallopeeps!

    Anyone using HP RGS (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/workstations/remote-graphics-software.html) in anger? It's always been on the radar for me to try out, but I've never jumped in.

    Now they're boasting 60 FPS and native Wacom support, it's looking more tempting.

    Anyone using this in place of say, Terradici?

    They announced and released CC2017 today.
    (Never mind what happened to 2016!)

    Ahh, Adobe release day. Heres how this day usually goes for me:

    No, Im not upgrading the whole studio to new adobe versions on day zero
    No, Im not upgrading your machine ahead of everyone elses. I dont have the manpower for the compatibility nightmare it would cause.
    Why cant we upgrade now? Because adobe writes trash code! And the people packaging it are incompetent. It usually takes them a few months to un-break everything that theyve broken today

    *sigh*
    Anyone else?

    3D Monitor under Linux - 3D Vision Linux
    posted by Mathieu Arseneault on Nov. 8, 2016, 9:40 a.m. (2 days ago)

    Hi,

    Anyone with good insight on using 3D Monitor under linux (CentOS7).

    Passive monitors are out of the picture unfortunately, that leaves actives as the only option.

    We are trying to avoid using quadro video cards, which seems it is impossible.

     

    I'd like some insights if anyone is in that situation.

     

    Thanks

    Mathieu

    Recommended Workstation Filesystem?
    posted by Mike Rochefort on Nov. 10, 2016, 1:11 p.m.

    One of the things that I'm still very novice with is filesystems. I'm looking into transferring a workstation over to CentOS 7, and although I can get myself up and running quickly, I don't know which filesystem is best to choose: Ext 4 or XFS.

    Over in the Foundry's community, Ext 4 has been recommended (I always get the warning of using XFS from Mari). I've only ever used used XFS in setting up and trying things out, however. I know the general differences between the two, but for a workstaion running the following apps: Maya, Houdini, Modo, Mari, Substance, Nuke, Fusion, Redshift, RenderMan, with the following storage setup, what would you recommend?

    • 2x 250GB SSD
    • 1x 120GB SSD
    • 3x 1TB HDD (2 of which are  currently software RAID0)

    Thanks,

    Mike Rochefort

    Yes,   "old" commodity hardware saving the day.   Our Cisco firewall was unable to fill the 1 gig pipe due to license (they call it hardware) limitations.   Its a joke really,  in 2016.        

    This pfsense box is a 6 interface 2630@2.4GHz with 12 cores and 96 gigs of memory.  lol..    I use most of the RAM for SQUID and ClamAV.

    Take a look at these images I have included in this message,  using the same data set to transfer,  one is via straight up rsync with multiple streams in parallel (8),  the other is with GridFTP using -p 8 (also 8 streams).   rsync has a hard time maintaining any consistency where GridFTP pegs it for the duration.     

    We will be testing it against the commercial offerings soon,  but based on my past experiences it isn't worth the time to do so...The cat is out of the bag -  its not a black art anymore to use long and wide pipes efficiently.  

     Amazon, S3 and friends are supporting GridFTP and other service providers are getting on board.

    Probably cheaper than ASA licenses for the proper bandwidth.

    Yes,   "old" commodity hardware saving the day.   Our Cisco firewall was unable to fill the 1 gig pipe due to license (they call it hardware) limitations.   Its a joke really,  in 2016.        

    This pfsense box is a 6 interface 2630@2.4GHz with 12 cores and 96 gigs of memory.  lol..    I use most of the RAM for SQUID and ClamAV.

    Make sure you look at GridFTP WIll.   I can saturate +94% of a 1 gig link between Toronto and Seoul Korea consistently at any time of the day (could of likely used it all but normal studio traffic was sharing it.).  It can use UDT instead of tcp by use of libudt,  but it isn't really necessary in most cases.  

    Take a look at these images I have included in this message,  using the same data set to transfer,  one is via straight up rsync with multiple streams in parallel (8),  the other is with GridFTP using -p 8 (also 8 streams).   rsync has a hard time maintaining any consistency where GridFTP pegs it for the duration.     

    We will be testing it against the commercial offerings soon,  but based on my past experiences it isn't worth the time to do so...The cat is out of the bag -  its not a black art anymore to use long and wide pipes efficiently.  

     Amazon, S3 and friends are supporting GridFTP and other service providers are getting on board.   


    RSYNC on its own:

    As others have pointed out Aspera and FileCatalyst are both great options.

    Free stuff if you like science projects: gridftp, tsunami, udt, fdt, unison, bbcp

    If you want to get really crazy there is always the web10g project: https://web10g.org

    If you're looking to cost cut over Aspera, give FileCatalyst a look.  Good product, great support too.

    Teradici "Alta" Zero Clients, now with UHD support:
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Nov. 16, 2016, 1:25 p.m. (2 days ago)
    From:

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/11/16/teradici_alta/

    "Teradici's new new range of Alta zero clients with Socionext's silicon inside are gruntier than their predecessors. The new boxen can drive a pair of 4K monitors, include WiFi, USB 3.0 and the choice of DisplayPort or HDMI."

    http://www.teradici.com/products-and-solutions/pcoip-products/zero-clients

    Perhaps worryingly I'm not seeing a corresponding "Alta" host card:

    http://www.teradici.com/products-and-solutions/pcoip-products/remote-workstation-solutions/remote-workstation-card

    Hopefully that will show up soon? Also haven't found any info on any compatibility between Tera2 and Alta devices.

    Teradici "Alta" Zero Clients, now with UHD support:
    posted by Saker Klippsten on Nov. 16, 2016, 1:50 p.m. (2 days ago)
    http://connect.teradici.com/blog/meet-alta-the-newest-pcoip-zero-client

    "We expect our OEM partners to begin shipping Alta PCoIP Zero Clients alongside their existing Tera2-based Zero Clients early next year, both in traditional Zero Client form factors and as wireless-enabled laptops."


    From what I heard it should be compatible connecting to a tera2 hostcard but there is no new UHD4k Hostcards.
    It will be using the PCoiP Access Software to do that.When I spoke to them at Siggraph they were currently working on making it multi-threaded. Right now it uses a single core to do the encoding. I think it has a max frame rate of 30ftps which is why they were working on making it multithreaded to get it up to 60+ which is a requirement for us.


    If it works.. it will be nice not needing a hostcard. Which will allow for new form-factors. :)
    You will not get BIOS access etc.. since its software based it will be more akin to RDP access. when the system is fully up on the OS Level.
