09 — Settings

In this part of the app you can check information and adjust basic settings for your Golem node.

Settings

Your Account

In this section you can change your Golem node name. The node name is currently only used to be displayed on some stats pages. You can also see the unique ID for your node which is used to identify it on the Golem network. You cannot change this.

Performance

Here you can see how efficient your machine is for computing specific tasks. You can increase those values by giving more resources to your machine in the Network view > Resources.

If you are a Requestor these values will be used to estimate real deadlines for your tasks and if you are a Provider they will be used to decide if your machine is powerful enough to compute any given task.

Price

The Provider Minimum means the smallest payment per hour for others to use your machine that you are willing to accept. Keep in mind that if you set this price too high, you may not get allocated many tasks by the network.

The Requestor Minimum is the default price that you are willing to pay per hour of computation on the network. You can check this value for specific tasks. Keep in mind that if you set this price too low, you may not find many Providers willing to compute your task.

Network Trust

In this section you can define how much you are willing to trust nodes on the network to compute your task (requesting) or to send tasks to you (providing). Setting trust to 0 will mean that you will always be open to work with any node from the network, setting trust to 100 will mean that you will only work with nodes with which you have already successfully collaborated with in the past.

A low providing trust means that your node may get more task requests, but from less reliable requestors. A high setting could mean less tasks, but more reliable requestors.

A low requesting trust means that many nodes will be able to compute your task, but also the less reliable ones. A high setting could mean that there will be less providers willing to compute your tasks, but they are more reliable.

Default File Location

Here you can define the default output folder where the returned results of your tasks will be saved. You are able to change this location on a task by task basis, but this allows you to set the default.
