Tractor Scheduler Node Refreshed June 10, 2019, 6:15 p.m.

Awesome, thanks for adding those params!

Cheers for the direction with that error message. I'm going to put that one down to trying new things late on a Friday afternoon at work…

Tractor Scheduler Node Refreshed June 6, 2019, 9:37 p.m.

Hey, thanks so much for this.

We are running some tests and we've come into a need to specify the relay and xmlport ports due to our firewall restrictions. Is there a possibility to expose this in the Scheduler parms? We hardcoded the values in prtractor.py

mq_cmd = '"__PDG_PYTHON__" "__PDG_SCRIPTDIR__/pdgmq.py" --xmlport 40002 --relayport 40001 --start'

and it worked.

Another thing that might be useful for new people is setting the default value of $HFS NFS path to
$HFS
and the default value of Shared File Root Path NFS to
$HIP

Another another thing is we noticed four frames appeared to fail in the PDG node output, but they actually rendered fine. This is possibly a more edge case problem. The log in Tractor was as follows:

Again, thanks so much for this change. Seeing them all under one job is great!

Thanks,

ROP Fetch libHoudiniUT.so undefined symbol April 3, 2019, 6:46 a.m.

Hi all,

In the latest daily builds for Houdini 17.5.208 and 17.5.214, it seems that all ROP Fetches appear to fail. It seems to be an undefined symbol in libHoudiniUT.so.

Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing this?

Dirtying and cooking the node immediately changes them to success and goes green.

It works successfully in 17.5.173.

All done on the local scheduler.

Thanks,
Ben
