Minimum ram for a render-slave machine?
Whats the least amount of ram you can use for a render-slave machine? If low on ram is it with using linux on it instead of windows?
I've got an old laptop laying around that i was thinking of making a slave, but it's pretty old and only has 256mb of ram at the moment, i think the max it supports may be 1-2gb. Whats the minimum ram i could use for slave machine? Also, is there a law of diminishing returns with processor speed? Like, if the processor is below X spec is it not even worth using it?
I'm using Vray as my renderer btw

I'd say the same as the machine needed that the files were made on.

that is not what diminishing return means but yes, if it takes longer for the network to transmit the scene and its resources than it would take on the original machine to do the work then it would slow it down. Not a huge issue on a frame by frame basis but on a distributed bucket system it needs to transmit the entire scene contents in raw form as it is in your ram (many gigabytes) which is why its usually not viable for advanced scenes on a sub 10GBe network.
