One of the most frequent issues I am having with Deadline is the slaves on the machines hanging up. Countless times I have had to log in over the weekend and at night, because I know for a fact, slaves inevitably hang on a frame that it’s rendering indefinitely until I requeue the task manually. If I don’t constantly monitor the job, eventually almost every slave will begin to hang.
So from what I understand, the “timeouts” section under Job Properties is meant to remedy this - the problem is once I punch in all my settings, the slaves still go over the min / max render times and don’t “Requeue” on task timeout.
Here are my settings.
What am I doing wrong, if anything?
