FPGA plugin integration with Slrum Workload Manager

Hi, 

I'm working on creating an HPC Cluster with Intel FPGAs for Job Scheduling. However, this requires an FPGA plugin to be developed to support Slurm Workload manager as GRES(Generic Resource Scheduling) plugin. 

 

Can you please help me in creating the Plugin? 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Saikiran Belana

Hi @Jeet14 ,

 

I'm currently using Intel Arria 10 FPGA PAC Card.

Hi, 


We have OPAE quick start guide to manage the Arria 10 PAC card resource. This page gives you steps and complete access to the Arria 10 PAC card programming's.


Unfortunately, we don't have any document on creating the plugins using Slurm Workload manager.

Will OPAE APIs be sufficient to manage multi-FPGAs resources? We are dealing with HPC clusters in this case.

By any chance, can we use OneAPI for integrating the Arria 10 FPGAs as plugins to HPC Schedulers like Slurm(the same way as OpenPBS implemented in DevCloud? 

 

Thanks,

Saikiran

Hi,


Yes, OPAE API can be used to manage the FPGA resources. Yes it should be possible with oneAPI for integrating the Arria 10 FPGAs but didn't tried.

I suggest you to refer the below link to explore the oneAPI sample code etc.

Thank you. We will check and respond back if it works. Hopefully, OPAE would be a good fit for us.

Thanks Jateesh, I'll be using Slurm's underlying GRES to allocate FPGAs to users.
