Swarm Network Distribution
in the last days I tried to get Swarm working properly. I want to use 3 computers for the lighting calculation. The Swarm coordinator find all agents. But as other users have the same problem the connection drops randomly for no reason. I tried a lot of things and read nearly every post I could find on this topic.
I use a gigabit network with cable network router. All PCs have Windows 10 installed.
Here are some images from my Swarm setup.
Hopefully someone has an idea how to solve it because I really need some hardware support for light build (even my current hardware is not the strongest).

I could solve my problem by changing the SwarmAgent through code and runtime setup.
I changed the SwarmAgent source code and set the busy threshold value to 80%. Now the jobs are getting assigned and I also set within the Swarm settings the remote agent timeout to something very high: 10000. It seems that at some point it tries to ping the host agent. But when the agent is busy it will fail to answer the ping which leads then to a disconnect. With the high ping timeout this could be solved in my case.
