DJL Serving - WorkLoadManager¶
DJL Serving can be divided into a frontend and backend. The frontend is a netty webserver that manages incoming requests and operates the control plane. The backend WorkLoadManager handles the model batching, workers, and threading for high-performance inference.
For those who already have a web server infrastructure but want to operate high-performance inference, it is possible to use only the WorkLoadManager. For this reason, we have it split apart into a separate module.
Using the WorkLoadManager is quite simple. First, create a new one through the constructor:
WorkLoadManager wlm = new WorkLoadManager();
You can also configure the WorkLoadManager by using the static
ModelInfo modelInfo = new ModelInfo(...); Job job = new Job(modelInfo, input);
Once you have your job, it can be submitted to the WorkLoadManager.
It will automatically spin up workers if none are created and manage worker numbers.
Then, it returns a
CompletableFuture<Output> for the result.
CompletableFuture<Output> futureResult = wlm.runJob(job);
