This page provides information on managing render jobs in Chaos Cloud.

 

Overview


With Chaos Cloud you are able to submit, queue, monitor, and organize your render jobs across projects. To manage render jobs in Chaos Cloud you can use its web-based interface or a command line interface. This page explains how to manage render jobs in the web-based interface of Chaos Cloud.


Managing Jobs Through the Web Interface of Chaos Cloud


In the web interface of Chaos Cloud log in with your Chaos Group account and password.




Projects




The Projects tab hosts all render jobs submitted to Chaos Cloud. It allows organizing jobs in multiple projects, and it is also where you can download the output of your render, resubmit a render, or delete a render from Chaos Cloud. Every render job needs to be allocated to a project.




To create a new empty project, press the button. A small pop-up window asking you to enter a name for your project appears.



If Set as default is enabled, the newly created project becomes the default one, meaning that all subsequent render job submissions are automatically allocated to that project unless changed manually before submission.


To set a new default project, press the button while mouse-hovering over a project.

To delete a project, press the button.

To rename a project, press the button while hovering over a project's name.


Clicking on a project shows its contained render items. Here you can monitor, pause, cancel, delete, or download a render job.



To pause an ongoing render, click on the button while hovering over a render job.

To cancel an ongoing render altogether, click on the button.

To delete a completed render, press the button.

To download a completed render job, press the button.


Clicking on a render job within a project opens the Job Details page. The page displays the finished render if it's finished, information about it, as well as additional controls for downloading, resubmitting, or reporting a job.



To download the render job, press the button.

To delete the render job, press the button

To clone the render job, press the button. For more information, see the Clone Option page.

To report the render job, if something went wrong, press the button.

To view the render log, press the button.

To rename the render job, press the button while hovering over its name.

The progress of ongoing render jobs can be observed in real-time from the Job Details page.

Cloning a render job using the button allows you to set new final render settings.



Queue




The Queue tab is where all newly submitted, paused, or queued render jobs appear. From here you can monitor, pause, or cancel them.  No completed render jobs are listed here - they are all found at their respective project folder, allocated upon submission.




To pause an ongoing render job, click on the button while hovering over it.

To cancel an ongoing render altogether, click on the button.

You can have up to 10 000 Submitted render jobs and up to 100 Active render jobs.

If a job with status Failed or Cancelled has no option buttons to clone or download it, it means the job has failed during upload.

 

How to get a Job ID


The ID of a render job can be obtained in two ways. Еither upon submission, through а command line interface, or from the Chaos Cloud's URL of the web interface when the Job Details page is open, as shown in the image below.
