I’m having a strange issue, or at least one that i think is strange and maybe its perfectly normal with Pulze render manager. I send jobs as normal priority usually but sometimes I want to skip the queue and start rendering this new one I’m sending. So away i go and submit the jobs as high priority. Job done, however when you look at the monitor, it doesn’t assign any nodes to those high priority jobs, ever. it just sits on 0/0. I expected the nodes to finish their current tasks and then jump on the high priority job but it doesn’t seem to work that way.
So i tested further, cleared the queue and resent the jobs high priority again. No nodes were rendering anything but it still didn’t assign them to the high priority job. Still sitting at 0/0. now if i change them in the queue back to normal priority they pick up the jobs.
Some context on my set up. I run a AMD 3990x as my main rig and implement night mode when I’m ready to render. I am about to add a second node to this but at the moment its a one system farm. I went digging in the settings to see if i could see something related to admin nodes not allowed to render high priority jobs but couldn’t see anything.
I’m getting around the issue by setting dependencies at the moment but in theory setting to high priority should take all the resources correct? or am i doing something wrong?
To add to this info, basically it always does the normal jobs first. It never wants to go to the high priority jobs.
Any help would be hugely appreciated.
