Six bit scheduling system

Ø Chinese support and after sales .

On the market 99% Rendering management software does not support Chinese , And can not provide good after-sales technical support in China , This is also a major drawback of foreign software . Some rendering management software can only support a certain limit of English email , Some have no after-sales personnel who are familiar with the technology at all in China , So it's inconvenient for rendering management , Many rendering tasks can't be executed , Cause unnecessary economic losses to the enterprise .

Ø Centralized management of complex hardware environments .

The processing power and efficiency of the computers used for rendering in enterprises and universities may vary greatly , How to effectively manage this complex hardware environment 、 Reasonable allocation of rendering resources puts forward higher requirements for management software .

Ø In order to save cost , Workstations are often required to participate in rendering .

Examples are as follows , A studio usually has dozens of workstations , There is no dedicated rendering server or a small number of rendering servers , At ordinary times “ The artist ” We use workstations to make , Use your spare time 3dsmax Self contained backburner Network rendering . How to deal with the conflict between the rendering path and the working path is always bothering the enterprise users , In addition to purchasing some foreign asset management software , Other rendering management software can't deal with this problem well .

Ø To serve a variety of applications .

At present, the update of rendering software and plug-ins is very fast , To get the best results, production companies often use the latest version of software , This requires the manufacturers of rendering management to quickly support the latest renderers , And make good after-sales support .

Ø Rendering efficiency is closely related to hardware and network topology .

Different enterprises or schools have their own characteristics and hardware selection , And network topology , It has a great influence on the efficiency of rendering . This requires rendering management providers to be able to meet customer needs , Adjust configuration and software in time , Suitable for the needs of customers , To achieve the best operational efficiency .

Ø Remote management capabilities may be required .

Remote submit task required , monitor , Remote management functions such as viewing results , So that users can manage at home or other places anytime, anywhere , Instead of working in the studio at night .

Ø Ease of use .

It's a lot of open-source software, or a lot of computing software . In the animation industry , The ease of use of many of these software becomes a big problem . Many softwares sacrifice the personal support for the needs of animation and film industry in order to be universal . such as , Most users need to test the task first , Then look at the performance and the results to decide whether to spend money on the continued rendering , This small function is not supported in most rendering software .

Ø Energy saving

Most of the cost of rendering clusters comes from electricity bills , So there must be good software management strategies .

Ø Perfect Chinese support and after-sales service .

The cluster management software supports both Chinese and English , At the same time, Chinese help book and training course are provided , Make sure the user can use the software correctly , Give full play to the real performance of the cluster . The interface supports both Chinese and English , Provide a standard glossary of terms , Convenient for domestic users to operate .

1. Localization is a great advantage of dazzle software compared with other competitors . All interfaces 、 help 、 The course books are written in Chinese , It greatly reduces the learning cycle of users , At the same time, it can ensure that users accurately grasp the characteristics of the software , Provides rendering efficiency .

2. Dazzle me cluster management software due to the perfect Chinese language support , Compatible with Chinese version of various renderers , Some foreign products can not handle the Chinese path and other issues .

Dazzle I can provide local technical support and after-sales service , For customers , This is incomparable to other foreign management software .

Ø Support multiple user configurations and resource associations .

Dazzle me by 、 User group 、 Task queue 、 Node groups 、 Flexible scheduling of six dimensions of node and file server , Can maximize the use of cluster resources , Improve the efficiency of rendering farm , And through a variety of combinations of resources , Can adapt to the needs of various applications , At the same time, it can also achieve the effect of energy saving .

Ø Provides two features , Greatly improve the rendering efficiency of the studio .

The first is rendering mode / The artist model . The so-called rendering mode means that workstations can participate in cluster rendering , In artist mode, workstations do not participate in cluster rendering . In order to completely isolate the rendering environment from the working environment , Dazzle me cluster management software supports drive letter conversion . For example, when an artist works , The working drive letter is X disc , When rendering, the scene file will also refer to X The material files in the disk, etc . But when you switch to render mode , The drive letter of the artist's work can be temporarily changed to Y disc , and X Disk is replaced by a network virtual disk , So when all workstations render , All files on the server use the same material , Make sure the rendering is correct . And when artists want to use this workstation , Dazzle me software can automatically Y Change the disk back to X disc , So as to continue to work in the original working environment . This function is suitable for Maya,3dsmax And other mainstream software .

The second is kernel control . In the main use 3dsmax In the studio , We all use powerful 4 Core processor or more cores , Even multiprocessor workstations . But the advantage of the processor in normal work The usage rate is not very high , In order to make effective use of the computing power of the workstation , Artists can work at the same time , While rendering in the background . here , Artists can use dazzle me Software , To control the number of cores participating in the background cluster rendering . Suppose the studio has 20 Workstations , Usually distributed 2 The core renders to the cluster , Let's say the working hours during the day 8 Hours , So basically no additional cost ( There's a slight increase in electricity ) Under the circumstances , It's equivalent to having a separate 10 platform 4 The core server is doing cluster rendering for free , This can greatly improve the production efficiency .

Ø Support 20 Various plug-ins , Be able to quickly develop new plug-ins and functions .

I support 20 Various plug-ins , It can meet the domestic mainstream demand , When there are new customer needs , I can take advantage of my own manufacturer , Quickly develop plug-in support for users' needs .

Ø Distributed design for hardware optimization .

Relying on its own technical advantages and can carry out on-the-spot investigation to customers , Dazzle me to be able to provide the most suitable rendering scheme for customers . For example, in the case of file servers , Dazzle I support including normal server , Use DAS File server ,NAS gateway , Link aggregation technology ,SAN Storage and other storage architectures , At the same time, it supports the load balancing technology of multiple network cards and multiple file servers , Dazzle me cluster management software built-in load balancing module , Different rendering nodes can be evenly distributed to different servers , More efficient use of disk and NIC bandwidth .

Ø Excellent remote management capabilities .

Compared with the desktop rendering control program provided by other products ( Run as a desktop client ), And other products WEB Render Manager ( Through the ordinary web page to operate ), Dazzle me cluster management software creatively will be rich client (RIA, Rich Internet Agent) It is introduced into the rendering management software , The management and control of rendering can achieve the user experience of desktop software level , And take advantage of the network , Users do not need to install any plug-ins, only through the browser can manipulate the whole process of rendering management , Ensure the safety of the rendering farm :

1. Users can submit rendering tasks independently through the network 、 Monitor the rendering process and view the rendering results ;

2. Compatible with all common browsers , Users don't need to install any client software or plug-ins , You can access it directly through your favorite browser ;

3. You can cross the firewall , This ensures the security of the rendering cluster ; by comparison , Many other products must open the desktop operating system level shared access to achieve the submission and monitoring of rendering tasks ;

4. Use the most advanced RIA technology , Make sure the data is real-time 、 High quality delivery to users ;

By using the above overall design , Dazzle me cluster management software can use the same operating interface , At the same time to meet the internal needs of enterprises and universities ( Access through LAN ) Users and outside the enterprise ( Through the external IP Wait for a visit ) User needs .

Because I have all web Page management capabilities , You can cross the firewall , Compared with other competitors with open desktop port, the security level is improved by one level .
