About this document
InstaLOD Grid Processing Slaves can be registered with an available server to accept and process incoming tasks. Setting up an InstaLOD Grid Processing Slave can be done with just a few clicks using the Command line or InstaLOD Studio XL.
Running a processing slave via command line
Set the working directory to the InstaLOD Pipeline location using
cd (change directory). To start an InstaLOD Grid slave, InstaLOD Pipeline needs to be executed with the
InstaLODCmd -slave -bind <slave-ip:port> -register <master-ip:port>
slave-ip:port requires an IP address of a local network interface that the server will be bound to. The
slave-ip is typically the local IP address of the machine and the port can be chosen arbitrarily. A slave can be registerted with a master server by specifying the
-register argument followed by the address of the master,
If your InstaLOD Grid network runs multiple master servers, the processsing power of a slave machine can be shared between them. Simply register the slave with all master servers in your network.
Setting up a slave via InstaLOD Studio XL
Configure the slave by locating the InstaLOD Pipeline folder directory and choose the IP address and port that the slave should be bound to. To register with a master server, select 'Add Master' and add the Hostname/IP and Port information of a master server. When done, select 'Start' to run the slave.
