Thoth's TensorFlow stack guidance example

See different branches for different examples

This is an example of an application which uses Thoth's recommendations to recommend a TensorFlow stack for a specific hardware. The application is showing a generic approach how to integrate inside OpenShift's s2i build process.

For CLI (Command Line Interface) examples, visit thoth-station/cli-examples repository.

OpenShift s2i - Source-To-Image

To have recommendations suited for your specific hardware, you need to configure the build to be done on a the hardware where the application is supposed to be run (specific node placement for build and application run which should match). This helps to explore available hardware during the application build. Hardware information together with the environment configuration (base container image) are subsequently sent to Thoth's recommendation engine to perform resolving of TensorFlow's dependencies.

To deploy this application to OpenShift:

oc project <YOUR-PROJECT-NAME>
oc process -f | oc apply -f -

The BuildConfig is using Fedora 31 Python 3.7 as a base for the application.

Once the templates get applied, a build is started. As the build is configured to ask Thoth for advises, Thoth is contacted (see thoth_conf_template.yaml configuration file for info on configuration options).

Thoth computes recommendations and gives back a Pipfile.lock with additional guidance on software stack (see build logs). Note that computing recommendations takes some time, there is assigned a certain amount of CPU based on Thoth's backend configuration. Results are cached (3 hours by default) so next builds for the same stack and same software/hardware configuration are faster (unless forced or any configuration change on client side).

To remove this application from OpenShift:

oc delete all --selector 'app=s2i-example-tensorflow'

Adjusting configuration options

See comments in the BuildConfig available in the repo as well as thoth-station/s2i-thoth for more info. The repo stated also provides a list of Thoth's base images with configuration options you can supply.

Follow instructions present in Thamos repository for more info on how to configure Thoth's client - "Thamos".

See also build config present in this repo to see configuration options supplied to this s2i based Python application.
