Use a private repository if you're not using actuated yet

GitHub recommends using a private repository with self-hosted runners because changes can be left over from a previous run, even when using Actions Runtime Controller. Actuated uses an ephemeral VM with an immutable image, so can be used on both public and private repos. Learn why in the FAQ.

Try out the action on your agent

Create a specs.sh file:

#!/bin/bash

echo Hostname: $(hostname)

echo whoami: $(whoami)

echo Information on main disk
df -h /

echo Memory info
free -h

echo Total CPUs:
echo CPUs: $(nproc)

echo CPU Model
cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep "model name"

echo Kernel and OS info
uname -a

if ! [ -e /dev/kvm ]; then
  echo "/dev/kvm does not exist"
else
  echo "/dev/kvm exists"
fi

echo OS info: $(cat /etc/os-release)

echo PATH: ${PATH}

echo Egress IP:
curl -s -L -S https://checkip.amazonaws.com

Create a new file at: .github/workflows/build.yml and commit it to the repository.
