I have 2 computers. They are both intel i7 PCs. One is an older one with 8 cores and showing up 64Gb of RAM. The other one has 12 working cores and 32 GB RAM. I can ping them both ways but they don’t work together very well. I’m running windows 10 home on both machines.
First I tried to make the 12 core remote computer be the coordinator but often the 12 core one would report rogue jobs that were than killed and I didn’t really see if the remote agent would finish any job at all or just do useless tasks that are killed every time for some reason.
Then I switched the coordinator to the other 8 core PC and it worked fine 3 times. Although there are large gaps were the 12 core PC doesn’t do anything for 10 minutes or more. Right now the 12 core PC did a lot of work 2% into the completion of the build but since then it is “currently available, unassigned”. Is that a normal behaviour? The 2nd PC has been idle for 4 hours now and the lighting build of the same project should have been finished a long time ago. There is no real new content added. I just had to move a couple of lights a little bit.
Any idea what would cause this? - There are no obvious error messages in the log of either swarm agent and there is nothing super complicated in the scene. I’m running 4.16 btw.
