Getting Started

In this video learn how to:

  • Create a keyring to store your credentials
  • Create an image and add an image ID
  • Create a source and attach it to a compute template

How to Send a Workload to the YellowDog Platform

In this video learn how to:

  • Provision compute using a template within Compute Requirements
  • Set up an image path
  • Set up task dependencies within Work Requirements
  • View logs and usage

How to Configure Compute Sources Within the YellowDog Platform

In this video learn how you can configure compute sources in two different ways:

  1. Specifically define the exact instance type you want to bring up, with the associated namespace.
  2. Loosely set up a region source without specifying the instance types.

An Introduction to Compute Templates in the YellowDog Platform

In this video learn about the different compute provisioning strategies:

  • Single source
  • Split source
  • Waterfall

How to Provision Compute in the YellowDog Platform Using Templates

In this video learn how to:

  • Select a provisioning template
  • Select the number of resources to provision
  • Maintain instance count

The Difference Between Static and Dynamic Provisioning Templates

In this video learn how you can build:

  • Static templates: where you explicitly state the instance type(s) and region(s) you want to use.
  • Dynamic templates: where you give your constraints and preferences, and allow our Best Source of Compute algorithms to identify the machines that most closely match your requirements.

How to Provision Compute Using a Waterfall Strategy in the YellowDog Platform

In this video learn how to:

  • Set limits on specific machines
  • Add more instances to a running Compute Requirement

How to Use the Waterfall Strategy When Compute Allowances Are Exhausted

In this video learn how:

  • The waterfall strategy can solve availability issues
  • Allowances can restrict the usage of certain machines

 

How the YellowDog Scheduler Service Works

In this video learn how tasks can:

  • Have priorities to dictate which one runs first
  • Be interjected into the Work Requirement while its running
  • Be removed and priorities can be changed
  • Have dependencies on other tasks and on data

How Workers Execute Tasks Within Our Scheduler Service

In this video learn how:

  • Init data is used to get a worker to complete a task
  • To view logs to see what a worker is doing

How to Use the Image Service in the YellowDog Platform

In this video learn how:

  • Users can specify paths to images they hold in their cloud providers
  • The Compute Service will use the path to automatically select the right image

How to View Usage in the YellowDog Platform

In this video learn how to:

  • Apply filters to narrow your results
  • View usage within a specified date range
  • View the total amount of time spent by each source

Introducing the YellowDog Logs Service

In this video learn how to:

  • View logs within a certain timeframe
  • Apply filters to narrow your results

How to Use Credentials in the YellowDog Platform

In this video learn how we store credentials:

  • Using keyrings
  • With military-grade encryption AES-256
