    We are currently running Qube as our Render manager and have a small (96 cores) render farm + workstations at night.  The farm is running Windows and we’re running Maya and Mental Ray renders (CMDRANGE). 

     

    We have started having issues with “File not found” errors and failing frames.   IT seems to work OK for some frames and then fail again for others…not limited to any particular machine or machine type, job type or anything else I can find.  I have checked out and run some tests on my network…all seems to be OK there.  I have made sure that all machines are syncing clocks with NTP.  I sent in diags and PIRs for the BlueArc Mercury…all checked out OK…I’m now totally at a loss as to where to look.  One of my friends mentioned that they had similar issues on their linux farm and it turned out to be the limit on number of open files.  PipelineFX assures me that that only happens in linux.

     

    Anybody seen anything similar or have any suggestions where else I can look?

    Happy Thursday, folks!

    Absent a Final Cut Server, has anyone got a good solution to allow editorial work off-SAN/Network, with a check-in/version-control model?  In theory, I'd click "Check out this project," a local copy of it (with media) would come down to my firewire drive, I go home for the weekend and work, then I click "Check in" on Monday and any changes get pushed up to the repository.

    I looked at CatDV but it doesn't look like it has any kind of project/version control options.

  • 03/14/13--12:05: UNC vs Mapped shares
  • By Anonymous - Curious as to which you guys use for your win 7 clients.  UNC paths make sense for cross platform compatibility, ease of render farm networking, clean paths, etc.  but Autodesk products seem to like accessing files off drive letters a whole lot more.  I've also noticed some open/save dialogs hide shortcuts, and then requires artists to type in the \\server\share path by hand just to get back to the share.  Mostly just annoyances, but maybe there are better approaches.


    How do you guys have win 7 clients access shares?

  • 03/14/13--13:20: S.M.A.R.T. logging
  • By Anonymous - Every now and then I get an email from one of my RAIDs of a bunch of S.M.A.R.T. warnings, e.g. power on hours, head fly height, etc. Are there any decent tools out there to grab the contents from these emails and populate a database and then graphically display historical data for some or all SMART attributes?

    About to go live with my first Isilon.  We've been building & getting used to 6.5.5, but it looks like the current recommended release is v7.x.  

    I'd love to hear people's takes on whether to upgrade to 7 before going into production (saving us the hassle of downtime/learning new stuff IN production) vs. staying where we are.  Are there any compelling improvements in 7 that I'm really gonna want?  Any gremlins or gotchas that will break my tiny heart?

    By Anthony Moon -

    What's the easiest way to centralize mount points with OD and MCX?

    The only solution I can find is dragging the shares to the login window start-up items preference pane and this only works for CIFS..

    I can also add the NFS dsrecord attribute keys manually via the inspector.. but I'm not sure where exactly to put them..

    By Jean-Francois Panisset - A lot of vendors are still providing 32 bit builds of their applications, is that still relevant? QuickTime support on Windows is one case where you may still need it, but several apps have broken out their QuickTime support into a separate 32 bit server anyway. I'm sure 32 bit builds might come in handy once in a while, but there's a cost associated to everything, I would rather see development and testing resources allocated to other priorities. Are there any important uses of 32 bit builds that I might have missed?

  • 03/17/13--16:20: LTO Encryption
  • By Daniel Powter -

    We’ve got an upcoming film delivery on LTO5 and the contract calls for the tapes to be encrypted. I’d always been given the impression by the tape vendors that encryption was a simple matter of editing a config file to enable encryption on the drive, generating a key and then any data written through that drive would be encrypted. We would then be able to pass the key to the client, which they would locate in a location that they drive recognizes – DONE!

     

    Unfortunately, it does not look like that resembles anything close to the process – and that it will actually require encryption licenses, physical key manager servers etc. and not simply part of the LTO drive/tape spec as I believed.

     

    Looking to tap the depths of Studio SysAdmin knowledge regarding drive/library/backup system agnostic, preferably cheap/free LTO hardware encryption.

     

    Does anyone have any experience or advice with this?
