Is it possible to run multiple agent on EC2 machines started by the Autoscaler?
I think that by default you cannot,
having the Autoscaler start 1x p3.8xlarge (4 GPU) on AWS might be better than 4x p3.2xlarge (1 GPU) in terms of availability, but then then we’d need one Agent per GPU.
I think that this multi-GPU setup is only available in the enterprise tier.
That said, the AWS pricing is linear, it costs the same having 2 instances with 1 GPU as 1 instance with 2 GPUs, no?
Yes totally, but we’ve been having problems of getting these GPUs specifically (even manually in the EC2 console and across regions), so I thought maybe it’s easier to get one big one than many small ones, but I’ve never actually checked if that is true 🙂 Thanks anyhow!
