[docs]def initialize(coordinator_address: Optional[str] = None, num_processes: Optional[int] = None, process_id: Optional[int] = None, local_device_ids: Optional[Union[int, Sequence[int]]] = None): """Initializes the JAX distributed system. Calling :func:`~jax.distributed.initialize` prepares JAX for execution on multi-host GPU and Cloud TPU. :func:`~jax.distributed.initialize` must be called before performing any JAX computations. The JAX distributed system serves a number of roles: * it allows JAX processes to discover each other and share topology information, * it performs health checking, ensuring that all processes shut down if any process dies, and * it is used for distributed checkpointing. If you are using TPU, Slurm, or Open MPI, all arguments are optional: if omitted, they will be chosen automatically. Otherwise, you must provide the ``coordinator_address``, ``num_processes``, and ``process_id`` arguments to :func:`~jax.distributed.initialize`. Args: coordinator_address: the IP address of process `0` and a port on which that process should launch a coordinator service. The choice of port does not matter, so long as the port is available on the coordinator and all processes agree on the port. May be ``None`` only on supported environments, in which case it will be chosen automatically. Note that special addresses like ``localhost`` or ``127.0.0.1`` usually mean that the program will bind to a local interface and are not suitable when running in a multi-host environment. num_processes: Number of processes. May be ``None`` only on supported environments, in which case it will be chosen automatically. process_id: The ID number of the current process. The ``process_id`` values across the cluster must be a dense range ``0``, ``1``, ..., ``num_processes - 1``. May be ``None`` only on supported environments; if ``None`` it will be chosen automatically. local_device_ids: Restricts the visible devices of the current process to ``local_device_ids``. If ``None``, defaults to all local devices being visible to the process except when processes are launched via Slurm and Open MPI on GPUs. In that case, it will default to a single device per process. Raises: RuntimeError: If :func:`~jax.distributed.initialize` is called more than once. Example: Suppose there are two GPU processs, and process 0 is the designated coordinator with address ``10.0.0.1:1234``. To initialize the GPU cluster, run the following commands before anything else. On process 0: >>> jax.distributed.initialize(coordinator_address='10.0.0.1:1234', num_processes=2, process_id=0) # doctest: +SKIP On process 1: >>> jax.distributed.initialize(coordinator_address='10.0.0.1:1234', num_processes=2, process_id=1) # doctest: +SKIP """ global_state.initialize(coordinator_address, num_processes, process_id, local_device_ids) atexit.register(shutdown)
