Get Started with Kepler Model Server

Model server project facilitates tools for power model training, exporting, serving, and utilizing based on Kepler-exporting energy-related metrics. Check the following steps to get started with the project.

Step 1: Learn about Pipeline

The first step is to understand about power model building concept from training pipeline.

Step 2: Learn how to use the power model

Select estimator


There are two ways to use the models regarding the model format. If the model format can be processed directly inside the Kepler exporter such as Linear Regression weight in json format. There is no extra cofiguration.

However, if the model is in the general format archived in zip, It is needed to enable the estimator sidecar via environment variable or Kepler config map.

export NODE_COMPONENTS_ESTIMATOR=true

or

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
metadata:
name: kepler-cfm
namespace: kepler
data:
    MODEL_CONFIG: |
        NODE_COMPONENTS_ESTIMATOR=true

Select power model


There are two ways to obtain power model: static and dynamic.

Static configuration

A static way is to download the model directly from INIT_URL. It can be set via environment variable directly or via kepler-cfm Kepler config map. For example,

export NODE_COMPONENTS_INIT_URL= < Static URL >

or

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
metadata:
name: kepler-cfm
namespace: kepler
data:
    MODEL_CONFIG: |
        NODE_COMPONENTS_INIT_URL= < Static URL >

The static URL from standard pipeline v0.6 (std_v0.6) are listed here.

Dynamic via server API

A dynamic way is to enable the model server to auto select the power model which has the best accuracy and supported the running cluster environment. Similarly, It can be set via the environment variable or set it via Kepler config map.

export MODEL_SERVER_ENABLE=true

or

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
metadata:
name: kepler-cfm
namespace: kepler
data:
    MODEL_CONFIG: |
        MODEL_SERVER_ENABLE: "true"

Step 3: Learn how to train the power model and give back to the community

As you may be aware, it's essential to tailor power models to specific machine types rather than relying on a single generic model. We eagerly welcome contributions from the community to help build alternative power models on your machine through the model server project.

For detailed guidance on model training, please refer to our model training guidelines here.
