With the v4.10 update to CaptureGRID, there is a new “Network Mode” option for each node.
Previously, all nodes operated in a peer-to-peer networking mode, so all nodes connected and communicated directly with all the other nodes.
While this mode is still possible, there are now two new modes, Master and Slave. Using these allows the app to reduce network traffic, and so is intended for rigs that use a large number of computers.
For more information, read through the updated docs:
Also note! The old “Distribute Options” has been removed. Instead, options will be distributed for nodes that are set to Master network mode.
