houdini 17.5 flipbook lock file name changed?

Recommended Posts

Hi Houdini friends,

It seems that the flipbook lockfile name changed from 17.0 to 17.5? The hostname was using the one without the domain in 17.5, e.g. it is now 

.flipbook_lock.<hostname_with_out_domain>-<session_name>

Is there a way / an env variable that is stored for this? trying to get it from 

socket.gethostname()

or 

platform.node()

would all produce the full host name with domain, and there seems to be only "HOSTNAME" in env related to this, which is also the full host name with domain.

 

I could try to see if this lock file exists by wildcarding the domain, but just wanted to make sure that there might be a better way to know this for sure?

Thanks so much in advance!
