What is the minimal installation requirements for inference? the whole installation is really big and I presume not all of it is needed.
the inference itself is done in python.
Sorry if this is documented anywhere, but I searched and only got unrelated stuff.

You are right. For python (and C++) you only need to
so studying the script would give you a good idea of how PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PYTHONPATH are set and what is the minimal setup you need.
It really depends on how much of OpenVino you need to support, all plug-ins or just one, CPU extensions, format readers, opencv, etc
In the case of C++ for example you could just copy libinference_engine.so and libMKLDNNPlugin.so and libmkl_tiny_omp.so to your current directory and run minimal CPU inference.
Thank you for your reply!
This is a tedious hit and miss process, trimming based on the environment variables. And not very "official".
I would say that there should be an option to install only the inference related parts, no samples, no rpms.
In the silent install there is a components part, but there is not documentation to the comppat.
It's a really great product, but deployment is nearly impossible to smallish end devices.My docker images was huge, most of it because of openvino.
Ahhhh I found the comment at the top of the silent.cfg
the components are:
m@dl4:~/l_openvino_toolkit_p_2018.5.445$ ./install.sh --list_components intel-inference_engine_sdk__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-inference_engine_cpu__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-inference_engine_gpu__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-inference_engine_vpu__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-inference_engine_gna__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-inference_engine_hddl__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-model_optimizer__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-opencv_ubuntu_16_rel__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-openvx_ubuntu__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-models__noarch, version: 2018.5 intel-algorithms_ubuntu__noarch, version: 2018.5
so, for inference on cpu, will these be enough?
intel-inference_engine_sdk__noarch, version: 2018.5
intel-inference_engine_cpu__noarch, version: 2018.5
