Backburner startup script
show user profile  Idiotforaliving
Hi Guys,
Im trying to render a animation on our renderfarm using backburner. I want all nodes except the server to use all cores.On our main server however i want to use 6 of 8 cores. Because its only one specific machine i dont want to use a prerender script so i added a startup script in the folder that limits the buckets from 8 to 6. During a local render not submitted over backburner it works perfectly. When i submit over netrender it doesnt work and all cores are used. I dont see why it makes a difference between local and netrender regarding startup scripts.
Doe any of you have a clue?
Thnx!
Stefan

Hi guys, small update.
There is a functionality in maxscript that helps you set affinity.
read info here: http://help.autodesk.com/view/3DSMAX/2015/ENU/?guid=__files_GUID_CAC36F27_CB51_4C9F_B265_167F636C9A4D_htm

using the sysinfo.processAffinity syntax you can set the processor affinity. Somehow it does run this code at startup where this: do renderers.current.system_numThreads = 6 fails.
I think the vray numthreads is a more elegant solution but it needs to work in the first place.

Keep you posted!
