Akash Provider Attribute Updates

Initial Guidance and Assumptions

  • Conduct all steps in this guide from a Kubernetes control plane node in your Akash Provider cluster.
  • Guide assumes that your Akash Provider was installed via Helm Charts as detailed in this guide.
  • Guide assumes that the Kubernetes control plane node used has Helm installed. Refer to this guide step if a Helm install is needed. Return to this guide once Helm install is completed.

Caveats

Attributes in Active Leases

  • If your provider has active leases, attributes that were used during the creation of those leases cannot be updated
  • Example - if a lease was created and is active on your provider with key=region and value=us-east- it would not be possible to update the region attribute without closing those active leases prior

Pre-Update Attribute Captures

  • Prior to updating the Provider's attributes, capture the current attributes
  • We will use this current capture to compare against the updated provider subsequently

On Chain Current Attributes Capture

Command Template

  • Replace the <provider-address> variable with the address of your provider
provider-services query provider get <provder-address>

Example Command

provider-services query provider get akash1xmz9es9ay9ln9x2m3q8dlu0alxf0ltce7ykjfx

- key: region
value: us-central
- key: host
