Supported Frameworks, AWS Regions, Instance Types, and Tested Models

Important

Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces that there will be no new releases or versions of SageMaker Training Compiler. You can continue to utilize SageMaker Training Compiler through the existing AWS Deep Learning Containers (DLCs) for SageMaker Training. It is important to note that while the existing DLCs remain accessible, they will no longer receive patches or updates from AWS, in accordance with the AWS Deep Learning Containers Framework Support Policy.

Before using SageMaker Training Compiler, check if your framework of choice is supported, the instance types are available in your AWS account, and your AWS account is in one of the supported AWS Regions.

Note

SageMaker Training Compiler is available in the SageMaker Python SDK v2.70.0 or later.

Supported Frameworks

SageMaker Training Compiler supports the following deep learning frameworks and is available through AWS Deep Learning Containers.

AWS Regions

The SageMaker Training Compiler Containers are available in the AWS Regions where AWS Deep Learning Containers are in service except the China regions.

Supported Instance Types

SageMaker Training Compiler is tested on and supports the following ML instance types.

  • P4 instances

  • P3 instances

  • G4dn instances

  • G5 instances

For specs of the instance types, see the Accelerated Computing section in the Amazon EC2 Instance Types page. For information about instance pricing, see Amazon SageMaker Pricing.

If you encountered an error message similar to the following, follow the instructions at Request a service quota increase for SageMaker resources.

ResourceLimitExceeded: An error occurred (ResourceLimitExceeded) when calling the CreateTrainingJob operation: The account-level service limit 'ml.p3dn.24xlarge for training job usage' is 0 Instances, with current utilization of 0 Instances and a request delta of 1 Instances. Please contact AWS support to request an increase for this limit.

Tested Models

The following table includes a list of the models that have been tested with SageMaker Training Compiler. For reference, the largest batch size that is able to fit into memory is also included alongside other training parameters. SageMaker Training Compiler can change the memory footprint of the model training process; as a result, a larger batch size can often be used during the training process, further decreasing total training time. In some cases, SageMaker Training Compiler intelligently promotes caching which leads to a decrease in the largest batch size that can fit on the GPU. You must retune your model hyperparameters and find an optimal batch size for your case. To save time, use the following reference tables to look up a batch size that can be a good starting point for your use case.

Note

The batch sizes are local batch size that fit into each individual GPU in the respective instance type. You should also adjust the learning rate when changing the batch size.

Natural language processing (NLP) models

The following models are tested for training jobs for all combinations of single-node and multi-node with single or multi GPU cores and Automatic Mixed Precision (AMP) as indicated.
