Free Film Project - Remote & Distributed Processing
This will document all the requirements for remote access and distributed
processing within the project. This is intended as a guide for other
programmers wishing to contribute to the project.
- Where applicable, it should be practical to split a single task which is
inherently comprised of seperable units, and make those units available to
- eg: For graphics rendering, it would be possible to split the frames up
into N blocks, and farm out those blocks. For CSO, the machine grabbing the
physical frames can farm off the work to merge the image with one generated
by the computer, and a third machine can (if desired) patch the results back
- Because these are the best packages, at present, the project is going to
use Cosm for large-scale distribution of live data, and CVS for small-scale
distribution for static data. A CVS server, set up initially for code only,
will be up and running very shortly.
