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