device plugin


Definition of: device plugin-

Kubernetes provides a device plugin framework that you can use to advertise system hardware resources to the Kubelet. Instead of customizing the code for Kubernetes itself, vendors can implement a device plugin that you deploy either manually or as a DaemonSet.

The InAccel FPGA plugin for Kubernetes allows you to automatically:

  • Expose the type and number of FPGAs on each node of your cluster

  • Keep track of the health of your FPGAs

  • Run FPGA enabled containers in your Kubernetes cluster
