The main aim of this project was to create a custom peer to peer network. The user acting as the client has total flexibility on how to batch the tasks and the user acting as the server has complete flexibility on tracking the container’s usages and killing the containers at any point of time.

This project aims to create a peer to peer (p2p) network, where a user can use the p2p network to act as a client (i.e sending tasks) or the server (i.e executing the tasks). A prototype application will be developed, which comes bundled with a p2p module and possible to execute docker containers or virtual environments across selected nodes.

Installation from source

  1. Ensure the Go compiler is installed
    go version
  2. Ensure docker is installed (Should run without sudo)
    docker ps
  3. Clone this repository
    git clone https://github.com/Akilan1999/p2p-rendering-computation
  4. Install and build the project
    make install 
    • If you look closely you will get outputs such as:
      // Add them to your .bashrc file      
      export P2PRC=/<path>/p2p-rendering-computation
      export PATH=/<path>/p2p-rendering-computation:${PATH}
  5. Test if it works
    p2prc -h 


    ./p2prc -h

Design Architecture

The design architecture was inspired and based on the linux kernel design. The project is segmented into various modules. Each module is responsible for certain tasks in the project. The modules are highly dependent on each other hence the entire codebase can be considered as a huge monolithic chuck which acts as its own library

Read more on the Design Architecture


The programming language used for this project was Golang. The reason Go lang was chosen was because it is a compiled language. The entire codebase is just a single binary file. When distributing to other linux distributing the only requirement would be the binary file to run the code. It is easy to write independant modules and be monolithic at the sametime using Go. Using Go.mod makes it very easy to handle external libraries and modularise code. The go.mod name for the project is git.sr.ht/~akilan1999/p2p-rendering-computation.

We have decided to create a discord group.
