Create a SELF compute-unit - Local:

We strongly recommned directly using our CLI guide to create the SELF compute-units.

Starting with the simplest setup, the Local device operates without a static IP. Without a static IP, the Compute-Unit will not be accessible when using the DiPhyx Dashboard from other devices.

Steps to Create a SELF-Local Compute-Unit

Here are the steps to create a SELF-Local compute-unit: 1- Install DiPhyx CLI. 2- Go through the login process in terminal


Please visit login for detailed infromation on the login process 3- Start the dxflow service:

 diphyx dxflow up --create-compute-unit

After initiating the service, access the DiPhyx Dashboard on the same device where the service was started. You will see the newly created compute-unit listed under your compute-unit list. The name of the compute-unit corresponds to your device's name.

The compute-unit will only be available for use when its status changes to READY. To monitor its status, click on Events in the Dashboard:



Now that the compute-unit is ready, you can begin a new Project on this unit.

If you decide to rename the compute-unit, click on Adjust:


type the new name:

Note: This will not change the name of the device, and only change the compute-unit name


Click Adjust:


Terminate the Compute-Unit:

To terminate the compute-unit, use the following command::

diphyx dxflow down --terminate-compute-unit

These steps ensure that even without a static IP, you can effectively manage and utilize local compute resources within DiPhyx's framework, enhancing your computational workflow efficiency.
