I'm just beginning to play with the hqueuescheduler in TOPS and having no luck getting things going. A ropgeometry1_ropfetch* jobs seem to run but make no forward progress, hqserver.log isn't giving me much help. I'm wondering what ports need to be open for this stuff as we run hqueue in a fairly locked down environment. The hqueue installation is running fine for normal render jobs.
PDG + Hqueue installation152 1 2
Following up to my own post, more investigation would suggest that the PDG processes being spawned by hqueue on the renderfarm are trying to connect back (via xmlrpc) to the originating workstation and unfortunately our renderfarm and workstations networks are firewalled off. So it looks like a no go for the time being, or maybe some convoluted tunneling setups.
