Time estimates for network jobs not correct
« on: May 31, 2017, 06:33:32 PM »
I've been noticing that when I run a job on our network and then look at the Show Info dialog for the Chunk, the times for each step are wrong, in some cases very wrong.  For instance I just ran a batch process which I know took 4-5 hours to finish.  I can confirm this by looking at the details option for the job in the network monitor.  Here it says the Dense stage in total took a bit over 3 hours.  However the Show Info dialog says depth map generation took 2 hours and 21 min and dense cloud generation took 11 hours and 44 min.  The alignment numbers are also too large. Any idea what's going on here?

Hello willfig,

The timing saved in the Chunk Info for the projects processed via network is a sum of the time spent on each node. So if you had, for example, 5 nodes working simultaneously for 2 hours, the time in Chunk Info will be 10 hours, and not 2 hours.

I see. Thanks. So I guess there's no way to know how long it really took from the show Info?

Hello willfig,

You can check it only in the Network Monitor (show finished tasks -> start and finish time columns).
