Inner workings

Machina gets asked a lot of questions about how these boxes actually work—here are the answers.

Where does the data processing happen?

Everything happens inside the Docker container, no external API calls are made to other services. The boxes will work the same even if you don’t give them access to the internet.

The Interactive consoles report analytics and may load messages from the Machine Box servers to let you know about updates or new boxes. However, nothing relies on this, so feel free to run them in whichever network situation is best for you.
