    So what is the intended purpose? You say its an experiment to test the viability of a commercial 3d rendering farm?
    If you are setting up these machines to be a commercial render farm then you'll need to think a little harder about the client. Probably the best place to start is a small cluster and getting as many applications to render with the minimal of user interaction, rather than having 'what software will scale well on Linux?' as the question.
    Commercial render farms are already doing this, Im assuming its on Linux, so its possible.

    hello. i have a question, don't know shure if it's related to topic. i am using vray and net render on the job, using a network of about 10 computers. but the problem is when i render i get all the resources from others and this way i can not render while they are working because they can't work well, even with low thread priority activated on my settings in vray. so far i managed to start all the computers and limit the amount of cores used by 3d max and vray spawner on the other computers, at the startup. i am looking for something similar to limit the amount of RAM used by vray so as it doesn't takes it all from the others. i want to be able to render with let's say about 50 % power of other machines during the day but at the same time the others to work well without problems related the network rendering process. Any thoughts and ideas? Does anybody managed to do this ? Is this possible ? Thanx

    You can limit the number of CPU's used to render but I don't think you can do the same with memory because some scenes would exceed this limit and wouldn't load. Even if they did manage to fit into the memory limit they could quickly exceed it which would mean either a crash or disk caching which would further reduce the performance. Daytime rendering on workstations people are using is never a great idea, it causes way more problems than it fixes.
    I make fake things for real people to convince them fake things are real.

    Buy dedicated nodes. Reducing salaried employees capacity to work is a false economy....
    Typically you'll just use your compadres gHz at night time.
