Automatic Blacklisting (Solved)


#1

Hey guys,

We have a little bit of code that blacklists a slave if the software doesn’t exist on a machine, but unfortunately that’s on a plugin by plugin basis (Houdini/Maya etc).

Is there a setting whereby we can say (for all plugins) that if a machine fails on a task (ideally at least twice) that machine is then blacklisted from the job?

Thanks,
Shaun.

Something like this?

Mark a Slave as bad after it has generated this many errors for a Job in a row : If a Slave hits this many errors, it will be marked as bad for its current Job.
