Deploy a simple mlp training script as a Kubernetes job#

This tutorial uses mlp train as a teaching example on how to deploy an training application using Kubernetes on the Trn1 instances.

Prerequisite:#

Deploy a mlp training image#

  1. Create a file named mlp_train.yaml with the contents below.

Note

In the image: add the appropriate location of the image

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
  name: trn1-mlp
spec:
  restartPolicy: Never
  schedulerName: default-scheduler
  hostNetwork: true
  nodeSelector:
    beta.kubernetes.io/instance-type: trn1.32xlarge
    beta.kubernetes.io/instance-type: trn1.2xlarge
  containers:
    - name: trn1-mlp
      command: ["/usr/local/bin/python3"]
      args:  ["/opt/ml/mlp_train.py"]
      image: 647554078242.dkr.ecr.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/sunda-pt:k8s_mlp_0907
      imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent
      env:
      - name: NEURON_RT_LOG_LEVEL
        value: "INFO"
      resources:
        limits:
          aws.amazon.com/neuron: 2
        requests:
          aws.amazon.com/neuron: 2
  1. Deploy the pod.

kubectl apply -f mlp_train.yaml

3. Check the logs to make sure training completed

kubectl logs <pod name>

Your log should have the following
Final loss is 0.1977
----------End Training ---------------
