How Qube! Works
Qube! is a job queuing and dispatch system from PipelineFX, and while it’s designed to be task-agnostic, it’s primary use in the market is for managing render farms in the VFX and CGI industry.
Qube! is composed of three primary components:
Supervisor: this is the dispatch manager, and is always a dedicated machine
Clients: these submit jobs to the farm (“producers” in queueing parlance)
Workers: these are the execution hosts in the farm (“consumers” in queueing parlance)
Qube’s licensing paradigm is simple: the supervisor is both the license server and the sole consumer of those licenses, and the installation of any Qube component on a machine does not require a license.
Any number of worker licenses are installed on the supervisor and keyed to the supervisor’s MAC address, and a single license is consumed for every worker that is running one or more jobs. Internally, the supervisor merely counts how many workers are running jobs (regardless of whether that worker is running single or multiple jobs), and decrements the license count by this number. In the absence of metered license usage, when the number of workers running jobs equals the number of licenses, the supervisor will not start new jobs on any more machines.

GPU Rendering Since the introduction and then the further proliferation of GPU rendering, facilities are increasingly interested if use of these processor units will help them save time, increase complexity, and generate larger output formats. An integral part of using GPU's is figuring out what support is available in your render farm manager.
New Qube! UI Combining the functionality of WranglerView with a more colorful, more flexible user interface completely rewritten in C++ and Qt, the new Qube! UI will be the ultimate tool for users, wranglers, producers, management, or any role that needs to access farm status and data.
WranglerView The Qube! Worker License WranglerView GUI allows wranglers and system administrators to monitor and manage servers and other network equipment on your render pipeline in a straight-forward and complete view.
