Suggestions for NW Render Client
« on: October 19, 2017, 10:12:52 pm »
I want to start a topic for suggestions for the new(old) KS7 Render Client 7.1.51 and later Versions

- It would be nice if you could add the average time per Region a slave needs to complete the region.

- In the Scheduler it would be nice if you could  set the avaiable cores per Time Slot on a slave; In the working ours you could use let's say 50%
  of the Cores and on the non working hours you can use all cores from a  slave ?

Hello Mario,

Sorry for having missed your post.

We will take your suggestions into consideration, especially the last one is something we hope to do in the future.

To expand on the "during hours" idea even further, it's not so much ' during hours' as machine utilization.  NR (at least some versions) had the ability to set it so all cores are used once you log off, but that only seemed to work for the user account that this setting was configured in (it should work that way for ALL users who log into the machine by default).   That would enable conference room machines (that get little actual use), to be utilized through most of the day, and if someone logs in, the rendering is paused until they log back off.
As for regular user machines, most of our users leave themselves logged in all the time, if the screen is locked and there isn't significant CPU activity, then all the CPU cores are fair game.
