Databricks Runtime 6.3 ML

Databricks released this image in January 2020.

Databricks Runtime 6.3 ML provides a ready-to-go environment for machine learning and data science based on Databricks Runtime 6.3. Databricks Runtime ML contains many popular machine learning libraries, including TensorFlow, PyTorch, Keras, and XGBoost. It also supports distributed deep learning training using Horovod.

For more information, including instructions for creating a Databricks Runtime ML cluster, see Databricks Runtime for Machine Learning.

New features

Databricks Runtime 6.3 ML is built on top of Databricks Runtime 6.3. For information on what’s new in Databricks Runtime 6.3, see the Databricks Runtime 6.3 release notes.

Improvements

Upgraded machine learning libraries

  • PyTorch: 1.3.0 to 1.3.1

  • torchvision: 0.4.1 to 0.4.2 - includes an optimized video reader backend

  • MLflow: 1.4.0 to 1.5.0

    • Includes support for LightGBM, XGBoost, and Gluon flavors.
    • Fixed a bug where MLflow projects could not be executed against Databricks Runtime ML clusters.
    • For more details, see the MLflow 1.5.0 release.
  • Hyperopt: 0.2.1 to 0.2.2 - Updates include:

    • Fixed a bug in ATPE (Adaptiv-TPE), where the algorithm did not work properly with hp.choice and hp.randint.

    • Fixed some bugs in using tqdm, a Python module for reporting progress. For example, the progress bar was sometimes incorrect when executing parallel fmin().

    • Now warns about Spark task retries for long running trials. When retries are enabled and trial runs are making slow progress, this message will be printed:

      SparkTrials found that the Spark conf 'spark.task.maxFailures' is set to 4, which will make trials re-run automatically if they fail.
      If failures can occur from bad hyperparameter settings, or if trials are very long-running, then retries may not be a good idea.
      Consider setting spark.conf.set('spark.task.maxFailures', '1') to prevent retries.
      
    • Other small fixes. For details, see the Hyperopt 0.2.2 release.

Bug fixes

Fixed an issue that caused some missing cluster metrics, which happens frequently on GPU clusters with multi-GPU nodes.

System environment

The system environment in Databricks Runtime 6.3 ML differs from Databricks Runtime 6.3 as follows:

  • DBUtils: Does not contain Library utilities.
  • For GPU clusters, the following NVIDIA GPU libraries:
    • NVIDIA driver 418.40
    • CUDA 10.0
    • cuDNN 7.6.4
    • NCCL 2.4.8

Libraries

The following sections list the libraries included in Databricks Runtime 6.3 ML that differ from those included in Databricks Runtime 6.3.

Python libraries

Databricks Runtime 6.3 ML uses Conda for Python package management and includes many popular ML packages. The following section describes the Conda environment for Databricks Runtime 6.3 ML.
