GPU node setup
In Kubernetes, you can taint nodes to affect how the node is scheduled. You can ensure that nodes that have a GPU are reserved exclusively for CML workloads that require a GPU.
To reserve a GPU node, assign a taint to the node.
On Openshift, specify the node taint
nvidia.com/gpu: true:NoSchedule for any
nodes that host GPUs and are required to be used only for GPU workloads.
nvidia.com/gpu: true:NoSchedulein one of the following three ways:
- During ECS installation: After adding the GPU host(s) to Cloudera Manager but prior to creation of the ECS cluster, visit the Host Configuration page, select the Dedicated GPU Node for Data Services checkbox and Save the configuration. Repeat for all hosts on which the taint is desired. Then, proceed with installation via the Add Cluster wizard.
- During ECS upgrade: After upgrading Cloudera Manager (if applicable), set the host configuration as described above on one or more hosts in the ECS cluster. Then, proceed with upgrade via the Upgrade Cluster wizard.
- Independently of ECS install or upgrade: Set the host configuration as described above on one or more hosts in the ECS cluster. Redeploy the client configuration on the ECS cluster. Finally, run the Reapply All Settings to Cluster command on the ECS service, which can be found in the Service Actions menu.
