Event Schedule

Module Name Description Advisor(github ID and name) Details
Scheduler optimization for AI workloads
Optimize Arktos scheduler to leverage unique characteristics of AI workloads. The target is to reduce the AI job queuing time and completion time. The work should be delivered as Arktos scheduler plugins.
@Fizzbb(Zhaobo Zhang)
Integrate Mizar as the Arktos network provider
Update Arktos deployment scripts to support Mizar as its network provider. This includes several deployment environments: local machine, GCE and AWS.
@vinaykul (Vinay Kulkarni)
Develop An Edge Agent package
For Edge computing scenario. Develop an Edge agent package to wrap various the existing edge agents (like KubeEdge Edged, vanilla kubelet, etc). Other components only need to communicate with this wrapped package.
@pdgetrf (Peng Du)
A Test Framework to Support Large Scale Performance Test
Develop a test framework (including a lightweight node simulation) to reduce the cost of Arktos control plane scalability test. It should be much more lightweight than Kubermark/HollowNode as it doesn't need to simulate a full kubelet.
@Sindica (Ying Huang)
Improve Arktos scheduler implementation for better throughput
Improve Arktos scheduler with all the optimizations that you can think of, no matter new algorithms or refactoring code implementation. The target is to improve scheduler throughput measured by pods/second.
@XiaoningDing (Xiaoning Ding)
Non-technical people
We can have a blog contest for non-technical people –A blog that describes one or multiple use cases of Centaurus 5G Edge computing Next-gen cloud computing We can post the winner’s blog(s) on the NewStack website as one additional reward.
