Hi Jrab I just stumbled over your post looking for something unrelated. I'd propose these messages are related to the QMASTER component or one its its sub component services.. So if u haven't resolved this I'd suggest trying to isolate then remedy
Step 1: turn off Qmaster. Do this by using compressor 4's application "apple qmaster" menu and click on item "share this computer" . Select the "setup" tab and maker sure "share this compute" is UNTICKED. It wil scream and yell but just stop Qmaster
Step 2: then restart your mac. This will start restart the system log too
Step 3: use the activity monitor to see of qmasterd is started and that any COMPRESSOR tasks are NOT started
Step 4: rerun your compressor job. You have no clustering nor computer plus, so jus submit to "this computer"
Ok your Job runs fine and there probably no more messages as u describe. If so then I'd suspect that these messages are from the communications bit of compressor trying to access or mount its shared cluster storage for other compressor hosts to use.
Now before you restart Qmaster, simply go into the ~/library/applications support/Qmaster and DELETE the folder called Storage.. Don't worry, Qmaster will allocate a new one.
Restart Qmaster if u a using it, however this time go into the advanced tab instead of setup (as above) and move ten Qmaster cluster somewhere else if u like.
Then click on the "share this computer" and set up the services only or whatever u have used
Also select the network subsets u are using. DON'T LET IT DEFAULT TO ALL. Select one . This has always been an issue for me with qmaster tantrums...
and save the setting.
Wait a few minutes to let Qmaster start
Now examine the logs again and see if those messages appear
Post your results for others to see.
I'm afraid I wasn't so scientific, but I think the problem is resolved. No more balooning swap, at least. I started to do your steps but didn't have time to finish, then went to another project so never followed up. Recent;y however, I came back, wanting to make compressor work again.
In the application monitor, I noticed that when qmaster was running, there were 64 bit and non 64 bit pieces.
In the terminal, I found in "/usr/sbin" several qmaster files from 2008: qmasterca, qmasterd, qmasterprefs,qmasterqd. I deleted all of them, compressor, and anything in my ~/Library/ and /Library that had anything to do with qmaster. Including a qmaster system control panel. Then I re-downloaded and re-installed compressor. The older versions created conflicts that made everything crazy. Seems better now, at least so far, so good.
