Submitter 2.12.X - Suggestions

Postby pechart » 02 Oct 2015, 16:05

Hi!
Thanks for the new submitter, works fine.

One thing that should be made possible is the selection of multiple netjobs in the left window. When you want to change the renderer version you usually want to do this for ALL of your jobs at once.

Great, thanks!

Another thing: The 'paused' checkbox doesn't set all of the jobs in the list to paused.

And the live-update of the submission status hangs after the 5th job. Not a big thing, though.

EDIT: It seems, that the camera and layer gets attatched to the job name twice, somehow.

The bugs have been fixed in the just-released version 2.12.1.

Would it be possible to make the update of the submitter more automatic? Right now we have to update every machine with a submitter by hand. The client and remote controller updates are very nice and clean, so please integrate the submitter into that updates.

And also please give the submitter scripts a proper versioning. It's very annoying to guess which version a script actually has. And if there are any changes. So please provide a changelog for the scripts, even if there's nothing changed. Those scripts are the essential part of the submitting process, so please handle them as a crucial part of your software releases, too.

And one more wish (sorry ;)): Please make it possible to store the renderer and also it's version in the defaults of the submitter. Especially since it's not possible to change setiting (like the version) for multiple jobs at once.

Thanks a lot!

BTW, thanks a lot for those bugfixes in 2.12.1!

The submitter can't be updated that easily using the existing system, that is why we have not yet added automatic updating - but it is planned.

Giving the scripts a proper version number is a good idea; changes to the scripts are included in the VersionHistory.txt like all other changes.

Editing multiple jobs and more intelligent defaults are also on our to-do-list.

Great, thanks a lot! Looking forward to those updates.

EDIT: Oh, and please get rid of the fullscreen installer someday ;-).
