assign chunks on the fly

Post by pixelinmotion » 13 Jan 2009, 17:50

Hello again...

I was just wondering if it is possible to assign jobs (pending chunks) on the fly to different pools of machines that where not originally assigned to the job.

I have a job that I divide in let's say 8 chunks and my render farm pool has 5 machines, I would have 3 chunks waiting for a machine to become available, now if I notice after I submitted the job to the farm that the workstations pool has some machines free, I'd like to assign those 3 chunks to the free machines without having to stop everything and resubmit.

Do I make sense?

Thanks

Andres

Just edit the net job and assign the pool.

I'll give it a go, I thought that restarted the job from the top.

Thanks
