Clusterodm: what are steps to store data from multiple node on server?

I installed ClusterODM and NodeODM on primary and secondary machines. In Cluster ODM, nodes show online. Data gets processed on nodes. I installed MinIO for storing results of split / merge. and from this point on, I feel lost as what to do next. I want to use split / merge and then have merged result but Ah lost. Want to use local server instead of cloud services.

Can anyone guide please?

What’s the problem you face? Do you already have the local server(s)? Are you getting error messages when you run the processing? Something else?


I will get a server in a week or so. Presently, I am using computer having 8 core processor (3.8 ghz), 132 GB RAM and 10 TB SSD, GPU and a laptop (core i7, 32 GB RAM and 500 GB SSD) on LAN. I get clusterodm interface with nodes online. For testing (fast ortho), I upload images on nodes using split 27 and overlap 50. When I paste http://localhost:10000/ in sm-cluster, the processes fail. If I leave sm-cluster empty, the images get processed but where to get merged orthophoto?

In documentation I couldn’t understand path given in comand as follows : docker run -ti --rm -v /my/project:/datasets/code opendronemap/odm –project-path /datasets --split 800 --split-overlap 120 --sm-cluster http://:3001

For Autoscaling ClusterODM, I installed MinIO (to get S3-compatible bucket) but don’t know how to establish link between ClusterODM and MinIO.

In nutsell, I am unable to get merged results and can’t make S3-compatible bucket work.

That’s the management port for clusterodm, not the where the api is exposed. Try http://localhost:3000 instead.

Thanks for helping me grow in enriching ODM community. [http://localhost:3000] worked to process sub-modals and merging the results.
Then tried distributed split-merge but could not succeed. On main computer added another node (a laptop). On main computer’s node uploaded 27 images and set sm-cluster as [http://localhost:3000]: didn’t enter any split value and then on laptop’s node uploaded 12 images and sm-cluster as [http://localhost:3000] without setting split value. both nodes processed images but split-merge did not work. May you please guide?

Have tried both: i) in webODM under one project added two tasks using sm-cluster flag but without giving any split value;
ii) uploaded 400 images on WebODM setting processing node to Auto and using sm-cluster flag with split value at 100. In this case, only one node on main computer gets used.
