Task is a computational or other task, which can be performed on computer resourses for a certain time. Task is characterized by the parameters of the resource, which is necessary for its implementation and additional parameters.

Docker is used to perform Customer's tasks in SONM. Task can be packaged in a Docker container and then effectively performed on Supplier's resourses.

Create the task configuration file

The task configuration should be described in the <yourtask>.yaml file, for example task.yaml. To create your task configuration file follow the steps below (the Sonm components (CLI, Node) should be started).

  1. Open cmd.
  2. Create a blank text file in your home directory and name it as <yourtask>.yaml, for example, task.yaml.
  3. Open file to edit: sudo nano task.yaml.
  4. Fill the file with the parameters of your task that described below.
  5. Save and close the file.

Here is an example of the task.yaml file. All parameters have a description. Go to github to see the latest version.
