neuron-cli enters maintenance mode

10/27/2021 - Starting Neuron release 1.16.0, with the introduction of Neuron Runtime 2.x, neuron-cli is entering maintenance mode. neuron-cli functionality will be available only if Neuron Runtime 1.x (neuron-rtd) is being used by the application. If the application is using Neuron Runtime 2.x shared library(libnrt.so), neuron-cli functionality will not be available.

If you have used neuron-cli in previous releases, and you are migrating to newer Neuron releases where applications require Neuron Runtime 2.x shared library, please see the below Frequently Asked questions (FAQ). Future releases of neuron-cli will address critical bug fixes and security issues only. Previous releases of neuron-cli will continue to be available via rpm and deb packages.

Frequently Asked questions (FAQ)

Is there another tool that provide the same functionality as neuron-cli list-model?

Yes, please see Neuron LS User Guide or Neuron Monitor User Guide.

Is there another tool that provide the same functionality as neuron-cli create-ncg, neuron-cli destroy-ncg, and neuron-cli list-ncg?

No, these functionalities are no longer needed with Neuron Runtime 2.x,NeuronCore Groups (NCG) is deprecated and NEURONCORE_GROUP_SIZES environment variable is in the process of being deprecated, Please start using NEURON_RT_VISIBLE_CORES instead. See Neuron Runtime Configuration and Migrate your application to Neuron Runtime 2.x (libnrt.so)

for more information.

Is there another tool that provide the same functionality as neuron-cli reset?

No, this functionality is no longer needed with Neuron Runtime 2.x. Before introducing libnrt.so, in certain cases after an application crashed models had to be unloaded manually by calling neuron-cli reset.

With libnrt.so, applications runs in the context of the libnrt.so shared library and when an application exits the Neuron driver will free all resources associated with the application.
