Requesting more CPU (beta)
Modal jobs are guaranteed 0.25 CPU cores by default. However, if there is free CPU capacity on a worker, containers can use more than their allocated amount.
If you have code that you want to ensure receives a larger minimum number of
cores, you can request it using the
cpu argument. This expects a float number
of CPU cores:
import modal stub = modal.Stub() def my_function(): # code here will have access to 2.0 cores, at least ...
How many CPU cores can I request?
CPU requests are a beta feature. A maximum is enforced at function creation time
to ensure your application can be scheduled for execution. Requests exceeding
the maximum will be rejected with an
plan to support large CPU requests in the future.
