Dear All,
I would like to send out some simple command line tasks to Deadline avoiding the startup cost of Houdini on the farm. I've got all the required information to create the command, so Deadline shouldn't be doing anything but run the command giving back the exit value (success or not). Is it possible to do this in TOPs?
Thanks in advance,
Mate

You can use a Generic Generator TOP to produce work items with a custom command line, and schedule them with the Deadline Scheduler. The work items won't create Houdini processes on the farm -- they'll just run whatever custom command line you specified on the node.
