RNM supports a number of 3D rendering programs already, but the list of compatible softwares is continually expanding, in view of demands and feedback.

It is important to note that RNM is able to monitor and functionally supervise in the case of any application. Essentially, while monitoring rendering is the main function of RNM, it can carry out management tasks as well. Not to mention, it is capable of handling the spawner of Deadline and other monitoring softwares, this way RNM is suitable for optimising other softwares used in rendering.

While programs monitoring large sized render farms are job specific, RNM monitors the data and status of machines. Effective resource management is key, not only from the point of view pf cost reduction, but it makes scheduling of tasks easier as well, ensuring transparency and usability while running paralell projects.

In the event of a node error for example, RNM does not cut off the machine, but sends instant notifications and helps solving the problem by providing real time data on CPU and GPU status, RAM usage rate, threats and overheating risks. In other words, it is not only more comfortable than remote desktop, but can save us money and time by monitoring the efficiency of machines by providing full-scale availability to our farm irrespective of time and geographical location. Users are notified about unexpected events by SMS, e-mail, iOS or Android mobile application alerts, moreover users are provided with an insight into farm activities via RNM’s log.

Fundamental IT maintenance is also a feature of the software, but the development of render strength scale is also among the plans. With these pieces of information, users can see whether the maintenance, or restart of machines is necessary, what is more, the near continuous complete usage of our render farm can signal that our machine park needs an upgrade.
