a package that provides a marketstrategy for whitelisting on golem

watching requestor logs distribute 10 tasks asynchronously is fun. but you can have too much fun sometimes. if this rings true, i present to you the filterms python package (name finalization pending). it allows you to limit your requestor to only assign tasks to a specific provider then obsess over the details! can’t wait? read on!


first clone the repo directory into your script directory

$ git clone

script file setup

add the following import statement to the py script that instantiates the Golem object

from filterms import filterProviderMS

when instantiating the Golem object, assign filterProviderMS to the the named parameter strategy:

    async with Golem(
    ) as golem:

general example

set the environment variable and run the script, as in:

requestor$ GNPROVIDER=someprovidername python3

specific example

you might then run golemsp on testnet (in a separate machine/vm) with:

provider$ golemsp run --payment-network=rinkeby --subnet=devnet-beta

let this provider node be named “jupiter-legacy”.

then, on the requestor side (defaulting to testnet), e.g. using the blender example, you can run:

requestor$ GNPROVIDER=jupiter-legacy python3 ./

and see tasks (in the log) go only to jupiter-legacy!

specific example with a twist

it may be desirable to see how long it takes a file to upload to your provider.
blender may be useful for this purpose. create a file of desired length, let’s say, 100M, and use it instead of cubes.blend

requestor$ touch randomfile
requestor$ shred -n 1 -s 100M randomfile
requestor$ cp cubes.blend cubes.blend.bak
requestor$ ln -sf randomfile cubes.blend
requestor$ GNPROVIDER=jupiter-legacy python3 ./


if you do not set the GNPROVIDER environment variable, the script passes the default LeastExpensiveLinearPayuMS to run as normal.


this is a first rendition of a package/suite that aims to provide more convenience and flexbility to requestors on top of yapapi for testing (current state) or enhancing (planned features). stay tuned for further developments.
