8.1. Clara Pipeline Driver Overview¶
The NVIDIA Clara Pipeline Driver is a wrapper library that
- ensures that input and output dependencies between operators are respected,
- and allows the user code to retrieve data from pipeline-defined input/output paths or shared memory variables, allocations, and contexts. It is provided as a library to be included as part of your pipeline stage’s worker process. Client libraries are available for Python and for C/C++ applications.
8.1.3. Native Client¶
The Clara Pipeline Driver libraries are developed and targeted towards Ubuntu 18.04. Using other Linux variants is possible but not supported. This is true for the Python library as well as it makes extensive use of the native library.
