If you have clicked

the V-Ray Swarm Enable, you will be able to adjust some installation settings: 

ac. Don't use local machine – Enabling Don't use local machine will exclude the local machine from rendering; however, Swarm will continue using a small percentage of the local machine's resources to communicate with the nodes.  

bd. Goal – Sets the desired percentage of utilization of available resources. Computers added or removed to V-Ray Swarm will be taken into account automatically. 

ce. Network Discovery – controls how a Master Node is selected. The Master Swarm Node is the machine which can communicate with the greatest number of render node machines. By default, V-Ray Swarm's Network Discovery is set to use auto-discovery.

Auto-Discovery - On/Off

df. Tags - Tags allow you to tag this node with a descriptor that defines something about the machine, which we can later use to selectively control from inside of Revit.

Info

When Tags are being selected, they should be separated with a comma.
