Squidnet Network Render-farm

Squidnet is a Network render management software that allows users to submit batch render jobs to be distributed to idle stations. It has been setup to help with Maya animations, but it can be configured to handle other services. Contact Arts & Letters ( with questions.

Stations in the MRP 1007 lab have been configured as CLIENTS, which are stations that can submit the jobs to squid net. These stations are also part of the render farm so they will be working on the jobs in the background at a very low priority so it will not interfere with the users.
