Distributed rendering queue

Drqueue is a distributed rendering queue. It manages jobs on a renderfarm. It supports Maya, Blender, and Bmrt (Renderman) out of the box, and can support any other renderer or computing task that can be handled via scripting. The package has three tools: master, slave and drqman. The master acts as a server where tasks are stored and where computers running slaves report success or failure in executing tasks. The slaves run on every node of the renderfarm. They report load average; if it is below a set level, they are available for rendering and take the first task assigned by the master server. drqman is a GUI for controlling jobs and computers.
