SquidNet Network Distribution Processor 2.61

SquidNet Software’s Cross-Platform Network Distribution Processor (SquidNet) allows just about any distributed processing application (Maya, Blender, Lightwave, research, educational, etc…) with a command-line based interface to evenly distribute job "slices", segments or frames amongst one or more network processors. These network processors, called Tipnodes, pull and process outstanding job requests from a centralized virtual queue. This virtual queue contains jobs requests that are submitted from SquidNet users via the SquidNet Management Console (SMC) which  provides a GUI-based interface into the network.

SquidNet system supports the following features:

  • Submittal of job requests using application templates (Maya, 3DS Max, Blender, Generic, etc…).
  • Cross-Platform support (WINDOWS, LINUX).
  • Region Rendering.
  • Lightweight design. Very little or no network overhead.
  • User Account Management.
  • Dynamic load balancing algorithms evenly distribute jobs amongst network nodes.
  • Project-based workflow architecture.
  • Frame checking: Automatic re-queuing of missing frames.
  • Embedded image and sequence viewer. Support for OpenEXR, png, iff and most popular image formats.
  • Node Scheduler: Set processing times for each processing node on your system.
  • Wake-On-LAN support.
  • Platform Path Translation Manager. Issue a single path/file destination in cross-platform job requests.
  • Manage remote network installations from local Network Manager Dialog.
  • Assignment of Job Priorities (0-highest, 24-lowest).
  • Remote startup and shutdown of system nodes.
  • Centralized interface that provides users advanced flexibility and management options, including the ability to tap CPU power on desktop workstations during off-peak hours.
  • Tipnode support for multi-core processor systems.
  • Independent views into each subsystem  (job queue, work queue, tipnodes, etc…)
  • Streamlined digital workflow from one or more independent locations.
  • Monitors all render nodes on a network, and includes real-time CPU, memory and network traffic views.
  • Ability to specify the number of network tipnodes that a job will use.
  • Automatic restart of job slices if their processing times exceed a specific time period.
  • Priority Boosting — automatically increase priority of specific jobs every N minutes.
  • Selectable thread processing priorities. (Idle, Normal, High and Real-time).
  • Execution Script. Process job slices within criteria of O/S dependant batch file or shell script.
  • Job states: Queued, Processing, Interrupted, Suspended, Resumed, Error and Completed.
  • Increase/Decrease/Change job priorities.
  • Real-time log for system monitoring.
  • Real-time logging.
  • Extensive error reporting with the ability to resubmit frames from failed jobs.
  • Tipnode activation and de-activation.
  • Tipnode start/stop processing.
  • Email notification on specific job processing events.
  • Pool Management. Assign any tipnode to one or more network pools.
