Flamenco Worker will read its configuration from
flamenco-worker.yaml in the
worker’s current working directory.
This is an example of such a configuration file:
manager_url: http://flamenco.local:8080/ task_types: [blender, ffmpeg, file-management, misc] restart_exit_code: 47
manager_url: The URL of the Manager to connect to. If the setting is blank (or removed altogether) the Worker will try to auto-detect the Manager on the network.
task_types: The types of tasks this Worker is allowed to run. Task types are determined by the job compiler scripts; the ones listed here are in use by the default scripts. These determine which kind of tasks this Worker will get. See task types for more info.
restart_exit_code: Having this set to a non-zero value will mark this Worker as ‘restartable’. See Shut Down & Restart Actions for more information.
Apart from the above configuration file, which can be shared between Workers,
each Worker has a set of files that are specific to that Worker. These contain
the worker credentials (
flamenco-worker-credentials.yaml), which are used to
identify this worker to the Manager, and a database file
flamenco-worker.sqlite) to queue task updates when the Manager is
These files are stored in a platform-specific location:
Certain settings can be configured via environment variables.
FLAMENCO_HOME: Directory for Worker local files. If not given, the above defaults are used.
FLAMENCO_WORKER_NAME: The name of the Worker. If not specified, the Worker will use the hostname.
