Distributed Processing FAQ & Troubleshooting


 What happens if a processing node fails (due to power down or other interference)?

If a Worker node or job fails, the respective job will be redistributed to the next available Processing Node.

 What happens if the master node fails (due to power down or other interference)?

In case the master fails, open the SURE project from the Master PC and restart the nodes. SURE will continue with the unfinished sub-projects upon restarting. Only the sub-projects that were running at the time of the Master crash may need to be restarted; the finished sub-projects will not be reprocessed.

 When can I open or delete sub-project files?

While sub-projects behave the same as standard SURE projects, it is not recommended to modify nor open them, in particular while the processing is running. Doing so can corrupt the project files.

 Where is the process of a Distributed Process project logged?

When a project is run in Distributed Processing mode, there are several log files that contain the processing steps/times/error handling: the log.txt file of the main project, the dp.log and the log files of each sub-project.
