RGN 27 - RAPIDS Docker Run Command Changes in v22.04

Status

In Progress

Topic Docker Run Command Change
RAPIDS Version v22.04+
Created 08 June 2022
Updated N/A

Overview

As we expand out further across platforms and GPU architectures, we have recently identified and updated the RAPIDS docker run with additional parameters to provide a more stable way to run Multi Node/Multi GPU (MNMG). The new parameters are --shm-size=1g --ulimit memlock=-1. This change is currently in the RAPIDS Release Selector and will soon be updated in all docker instructions. We advise everyone to adopt these additional parameters for when running RAPIDS on Docker, especially if you’re running RAPIDS on ARM SBSA with MNMG.
