Managing Engine Profiles

This topic describes how to create and manage engine profiles.

Engine profiles define how many vCPUs and how much memory Cloudera Machine Learning will reserve for a particular session/job. As a site administrator you can create several different vCPU, GPU, and memory configurations which will be available when launching a session/job. When launching a new session, users will be able to select one of the available engine profiles depending on their project's requirements. Use the following steps to create and manage engine profiles.

Data Engine profiles available when launching a session

  1. To create engine profiles, go to the Admin > Engines page.
  2. Add a new profile under Engines Profiles.
    Cloudera recommends that all profiles include at least 2 GB of RAM to avoid out of memory errors for common user operations.
    You will see the option to add GPUs to the engine profiles only if your Cloudera Machine Learning hosts are equipped with GPUs, and you have enabled them for use by setting the relevant properties in cdsw.conf.
