K8sClusterManager(np::Integer; kwargs...)

A cluster manager using Kubernetes (k8s) which spawns additional pods as workers. Attempts to spawn np workers but may launch with less workers if the cluster has less resources available.


  • np: Desired number of worker pods to be launched.


  • namespace: the Kubernetes namespace to launch worker pods within. Defaults to current_namespace().
  • manager_pod_name: the name of the manager pod. Defaults to gethostname() which is the name of the pod when executed inside of a Kubernetes pod.
  • worker_prefix: the prefix given to spawned workers. Defaults to "$(manager_pod_name)-worker" when the manager is running inside of K8s otherwise defaults to "fv-az842-406-worker.
  • image: Docker image to use for the workers. Defaults to the image used by the manager when running inside of a K8s pod otherwise defaults to "julia:VERSION".
  • cpu: CPU resources requested for each worker. Defaults to 1,
  • memory: Memory resource requested for each worker in bytes. Requests may provide a unit suffix (e.g. "G" for Gigabytes and "Gi" for Gibibytes). Defaults to "4Gi".
  • pending_timeout: The maximum number of seconds to wait for a "Pending" worker pod to enter the "Running" phase. Once the timeout has been reached the manager will continue with the number of workers available (<= np). Defaults to 180 (3 minutes).
  • configure: A function which allows modification of the worker pod specification before their creation. Defaults to identity.
