Hi Folks, I Have A Question On Something That It'S Not Clear To Me Reading The Documentation At

Hi folks, I have a question on something that it's not clear to me reading the documentation at https://clear.ml/docs/latest/docs/clearml_agent/

From what I understand, Agent is something that end-users should install on their machines (laptop), to be able to then submit and execute jobs in the ClearML server.
However, when I see at what is deployed in Kubernetes, I also see that agents are deployed in the cluster.

So I have a few doubts on how to set things up for our server:
are agents needed on the server installation? how many agents are recommended? what best practices should I adopt when managing server side agents? should I ask the data scientist to install agents on their laptops? any other information you might want to give is appreciated 🙂

you can specify GPUs to use for each running agent

Hi Alon, thanks, I actually watched those videos. But they don't help with settings things up 🙂

From your explanation, I understand that Agents are indeed needed for ClearML to work.

but I don't understand the comment on GPUs as the documentation makes a lot of references on GPU configurations for agents

Hey SarcasticSquirrel56 ,

are agents needed on the server installation?No, you can have it running on the same machine (there is no limitation about it), but you can run the clearml-agent in every machine and the clearml-server doesn’t need those.

how many agents are recommended?It depends on your needs. Each agent can run a single task each time, so if you have 2 agents running, you can have 2 tasks training in the same time, and N agents will give you N running tasks.

what best practices should I adopt when managing server side agents?The server doesn’t need gpu, so I think only one agent running services-mode should be it.

should I ask the data scientist to install agents on their laptops?If your data scientist wants to run a task on the personal machine OR wants others to run tasks on the machine, yes, otherwise I dont think so

any other information you might want to give is appreciated
