Description

If you're using Dask with tasks that use a lot of memory, RAM is your bottleneck for parallelism. That means you want to know how much memory each task uses:

1. So you can set the highest parallelism level (process or threads) for each machine, given available to RAM. 2. In order to know where to focus memory optimization efforts.

dask-memusage is an MIT-licensed statistical memory profiler for Dask's Distributed scheduler that can help you with both these problems.

dask-memusage polls your processes for memory usage and records the minimum and maximum usage in a CSV.

Programming language: Python
Latest version: v1.1

Usage

Important: Make sure your workers only have a single thread! Otherwise the results will be wrong.

Installation

On the machine where you are running the Distributed scheduler, run:

$ pip install dask_memusage

Or if you're using Conda:

$ conda install -c conda-forge dask-memusage

API usage

# Add to your Scheduler object, which is e.g. your LocalCluster's scheduler
# attribute:
from dask_memoryusage import install
install(scheduler, "/tmp/memusage.csv")

CLI usage

$ dask-scheduler --preload dask_memusage --memusage.csv /tmp/memusage.csv

Limitations

  • Again, make sure you only have one thread per worker process.
  • This is statistical profiling, running every 10ms. Tasks that take less than that won't have accurate information.
