Memory Access Violation - Crashing on Renderfarm

Hey everyone, I'm trying to render our university project from Houdini to Arnold using our render farm, but we keep getting a tonne of errors that say "Memory Access Violation". We have checked our scenes, and none of the warnings in the logs seem to exist at all. We only have this issue when doing one of the following.

Adding fur/groom using 'hairgen' to our lit scene. Adding lights to a scene with the 'hairgen' in. The lights are Arnold Lights.


We also get "segmentation error" as well.


We can render locally without issues, but it's too slow to render shots.


This is the render log:

=======================================================

I managed figure it out literally a couple of hours after posting. It was indeed an error with one of the 'hairgen' nodes. We think the renderfarm was leaking memory and crashing during the fur calculations before handing it off to Arnold. It happened to occur for another project I was freelancing on with 'hairgen'. It made sense as we also had an issue with motion blur streaks appearing too. We narrowed that down to a 'resample' node, which was causing vertex point numbers to randomise. We fixed that with and attribute wrangle.


My solution was to force an ASS archive, then render using the Arnold client on the renderfarm, which seemed to work fine. The only downside was that we had to archive every frame for up to 6 render nodes depending on the shot, and uploading that is a major pain.

I had similar issue with an asset which had multiple fur nodes for diff diff body parts. I checked each fur node rendering separately and my goodness i found the issue on a fur node. I got it fixed by the hair n fur artist.

This says it is crashing inside houdini code. Have you tried upgrading your version of houdini and htoa to see if maybe it's a bug that has since been fixed?
