init_parallel_env

paddle.distributed.parallel. init_parallel_env ( ) [source]

Initialize parallel training environment in dynamic graph mode.

Note

Now initialize both NCCL and GLOO contexts for communication.

Returns

None

Examples

import paddle
import paddle.nn as nn
import paddle.optimizer as opt
import paddle.distributed as dist

class LinearNet(nn.Layer):
    def __init__(self):
        super(LinearNet, self).__init__()
        self._linear1 = nn.Linear(10, 10)
        self._linear2 = nn.Linear(10, 1)

    def forward(self, x):
        return self._linear2(self._linear1(x))

def train():
    # 1. initialize parallel environment
    dist.init_parallel_env()

    # 2. create data parallel layer & optimizer
    layer = LinearNet()
    dp_layer = paddle.DataParallel(layer)

    loss_fn = nn.MSELoss()
    adam = opt.Adam(
        learning_rate=0.001, parameters=dp_layer.parameters())

    # 3. run layer
    inputs = paddle.randn([10, 10], 'float32')
    outputs = dp_layer(inputs)
    labels = paddle.randn([10, 1], 'float32')
    loss = loss_fn(outputs, labels)

    loss.backward()
