Several simple examples for neural network toolkits (PyTorch, TensorFlow, etc.) calling custom CUDA operators.

We provide several ways to compile the CUDA kernels and their cpp wrappers, including jit, setuptools and cmake.

We also provide several python codes to call the CUDA kernels, including kernel time statistics and model training.

For more accurate time statistics, you'd best use nvprof or nsys to run the code.

PyTorch

Compile cpp and cuda

JIT
Directly run the python code.

Setuptools

python3 pytorch/setup.py install

CMake

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../pytorch
make

Run python

Compare kernel running time

python3 pytorch/time.py --compiler jit
python3 pytorch/time.py --compiler setup
python3 pytorch/time.py --compiler cmake

Train model

python3 pytorch/train.py --compiler jit
python3 pytorch/train.py --compiler setup
python3 pytorch/train.py --compiler cmake

TensorFlow

Compile cpp and cuda

CMake

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../tensorflow
make

Run python

Compare kernel running time

python3 tensorflow/time.py --compiler cmake

Train model

python3 tensorflow/train.py --compiler cmake

F.A.Q

Q. ImportError: libc10.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
A. You must do import torch before import add2.

Q. tensorflow.python.framework.errors_impl.NotFoundError: build/libadd2.so: undefined symbol: _ZTIN10tensorflow8OpKernelE
A. Check if ${TF_LFLAGS} in CmakeLists.txt is correct.
