Resources Specification

The Resources provides a structured way to detail the computational resources a Task requires. By specifying these requirements, you ensure that the task is scheduled on a node with adequate resources, optimizing performance and avoiding potential issues linked to resource constraints.

Resources Parameters:

  • CPU (string: <optional>): Defines the CPU resources required for the task. Units can be specified in cores (e.g., 2 for 2 CPU cores) or in milliCPU units (e.g., 250m or 0.25 for 250 milliCPU units). For instance, if you have half a CPU core, you can represent it as 500m or 0.5.

  • Memory (string: <optional>): Highlights the amount of RAM needed for the task. You can specify the memory in various units such as:

    • Kb for Kilobytes

    • Mb for Megabytes

    • Gb for Gigabytes

    • Tb for Terabytes

  • Disk (string: <optional>): States the disk storage space needed for the task. Similarly, the disk space can be expressed in units like Gb for Gigabytes, Mb for Megabytes, and so on. As an example, 10Gb indicates 10 Gigabytes of storage space.

  • GPU (string: <optional>): Denotes the number of GPU units required. For example, 2 signifies the requirement of 2 GPU units. This is crucial for tasks involving heavy computational processes, machine learning models, or tasks that leverage GPU acceleration.
