Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Swarm distributed // collecting photons stucks on certain machines

Hey Unrealers,

We've ran into a strange problem with Swarm Agent and I haven't found any solutions for this problem here on AnswerHUB.

First, here's a screenshot:

alt text

There are 5 machines connected. After kicking off the rendering process, only 2 computers make it to the processing mappings phase from the collecting photons phase. The rest remains orange in Swarm Agent.

My question is: why is that, and what is the solution for this problem?

Some facts:

  • We are using Unreal Editor version 4.11.2 on all PCs

  • All Unreal Editor instances were installed from scratch

  • We use Windows 10 with firewalls turned off on every PC

  • All computers have 32GB of RAM

Thanks for your help in advance!

Regards: Andy

Product Version: UE 4.11

This delay could be some nework issue, as you need to transfer all data from host. With 1gbps at full duplex there shoud be no trouble with 5 PCs.
