120 cores - impressive!Cumnor wrote:Hi Carl,
If your going to change to K10.4 is there a simple way of changing a remote engine or do you spend days like me changing all the engines by hand.
At the moment I have 120 single core remote engines on my IDeA projects and I am rather reluctant to spend more days changing each one by hand.
This is the best I can suggest:
Create "dummy folders" for each of your Slave machines. These dummy folders should contain everything particular for each machine, RTHomeServer configured with correct port numbers for each core and so on.
So, for example, if you have a 24 core machine (I assume you have some dual xeons to get to 120 cores) you'd create 1 dummy folder with 24 sub folders, each sub folder with RTHomeServer setup correctly. You'd also have at the bottom an "Auto-start" file, which I can email you if you don't have. It's just a tiny Notepad program which opens up RTHomeserver automatically for each core rather than by doing it by hand.
Anyway do NOT include the engine in the dummy folders, leave it out.
Then when a new engine comes out, copy the dummy folder for each machine and put it somewhere on C:
Then just drop the new engine into each sub-folder. Then you'll need to get each instance of the engine working properly (this will have to be done manually for each one, but should take 10 seconds per core).
Repeat for each Slave machine.
For 120 cores I think it'll still take you a full day to change the engine over - it's still very tedious - but at least you don't have to manually configure the RTHomeserver.
