View Full Version : Linux Renderfarms

10 October 2004, 09:08 AM
Hi Folks,

Everywhere i look arround, the Bigplayers like ILM or WETA using
Linux/Unix Systems to built up Renderfarms. Much People saying,
thadt Linux has an fast shared Memory Manager, much faster then
Windows 2000/XP and better, well integrated Multi CPU and
RAM, IO and Network Performance.

I using Linux a lot of Time for Software Development and
Networking Reasons, but now i want to built up an Renderingfarm
on Linux. Iam Beginner in building up Renderfarms (but not a Begin-
ner at Networking and Programming Things under Linux).

Is there anybody out there, thadt can explain how Pixars Alfred
Job Manager for Renderfarms works and what Hardware i do need
for it and can i use AMD64 Systems?
