I’m looking to implement functionality that would allow multiple jobs per slave similar to Tractor’s “slots” system. There seems to have been a lot of chatter on the Deadline forum back <2015 but I don’t see any reference in the docs regarding anything like this having been implemented.
The closest feature I can see would be slave instances. It seems like instances might have potential however I haven’t dug into the python api too deep to understand the possibilities. Is there the ability to dynamically spin up or retire instances as resources are requested or returned from jobs?
Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
