The details panel is normally to the right of the main Jobs panel. It contains several main tabs, some of which have sub-tabs. If the display is not wide enough, not all tabs will be visible at the same time. In that case, the little triangles at the top will indicate that there are more tabs to the right (or left). This is shown by filling in the right (or left) triangle with black. Click on the triangle to move along to the next set of tabs.

     

    Job Properties Panel 
    The Properties panel contains basic information about the job. It displays start time, end time, and many other job-specific time fields. It also displays the fields specified in the submission dialog.

     

    Job Logs Panel

    This contains three sub-tabs: 

    • Stdout Log  This shows the Stdout (standard output) text output from the job. It can be filtered to only display a specific frame or subjob/process by selecting a frame or subjob in the respective panel.
    • Stderr Log  This shows the Stderr (standard error) text output from the job. It can be filtered to only display a specific frame or subjob/process by selecting a frame or subjob in the respective panel.
    • Log Highlights  The Highlights Panel helps prevent the need to manually scan through potentially hundreds of thousands of lines in the stdout and stderr. For cmdline, cmdrange, and all SimpleCmd jobs, the "Highlights" Job Panel has been added to the Job Layout that stores a few lines of information on each frame directly in the database for easy loading. This panel is populated with information collected from the regex_* submission parameters. For common simplecmd jobtypes like for Maya BatchRender, these parameters are already specified.

    Output (Images) Panel 
    The Output Panel will optionally create smaller thumbnails of the output images and put them into columns. The number of columns depends on the width of the panel. 

    The width of the thumbnails is specified in the Preferences dialog.

    If there are 4 layers per frame, then the width can be adjusted to display 4 images per row, one column per layer. Then you can "scrub" up and down to see the image progression.

    For performance reasons, the number of frames displayed per job is capped. For displaying large numbers of images, please consider using an external viewer. 

     

    Dependency Graph Panel 

    Visually shows per-job and per-frame dependency relationships between jobs. It constructs this dependency graph from scanning the Job's "dependency" field. It will automatically put all jobs that are in the same metajob pgrp (process group) into the view as well as any upstream and downstream jobs. The background color of the node indicates the status of that job or frame.

    You can select jobs directly from this panel. In addition, a right-click popup menu allows you to perform all the main job actions directly from within the pane.  For users writing custom event-triggered callbacks, you can manually add an info-complete-{} field to represent the complex relationships. Items in the dependency field are comma-separated. See Job Submission Dialog Parameters for formats and examples.

     

    Time Graphs

    This has two sub-tabs:

    • Frame Times This shows a graph of all of the frames in the job and how long each takes to render. This is especially useful for sanity checking the expected times for frames visually.
    • Instance Timelines  The Instance Timelines shows a Gantt-style graph representing each Instance (or Process) and the Frames along a timeline. The wider bar represents individual frames. The thin horizontal bar represents the Instance process. Each is colored to represent the status of the Instance process and frame.

             

     

    Job Internals

    • Internal Data Displays all of the information in the Job package.
    • History Panel Display of all of the actions and communications pertaining to the job by the user, Qube! Supervisor, and Qube! Workers.
    • Stats Panel On completion of a job, displays basic information about memory usage and a few other values.
    • Callbacks Panel List all of the callbacks and parameters associated with this job.
