## Introduction

Polygraphy is a toolkit designed to assist in running and debugging deep learning models in various frameworks. It includes a [Python API](./polygraphy) and [a command-line interface (CLI)](./polygraphy/tools) built using this API.

Among other things, Polygraphy lets you:

  • Run inference among multiple backends, like TensorRT and ONNX-Runtime, and compare results

    (example: [API](examples/api/01_comparing_frameworks/), [CLI](examples/cli/run/01_comparing_frameworks/))

  • Convert models to various formats, e.g. TensorRT engines with post-training quantization

    (example: [API](examples/api/04_int8_calibration_in_tensorrt/), [CLI](examples/cli/convert/01_int8_calibration_in_tensorrt/))

  • View information about various types of models

    (example: [CLI](examples/cli/inspect/))

  • Modify ONNX models on the command-line:
    • Extract subgraphs (example: [CLI](examples/cli/surgeon/01_isolating_subgraphs/))

    • Simplify and sanitize (example: [CLI](examples/cli/surgeon/02_folding_constants/))

  • Isolate faulty tactics in TensorRT

    (example: [CLI](examples/cli/debug/01_debugging_flaky_trt_tactics/))

## Installation

IMPORTANT: Polygraphy supports only Python 3.6 and later.

Before following the instructions below, please ensure you are using a supported version of Python.

### Installing Prebuilt Wheels

`bash python -m pip install colored polygraphy --extra-index-url `

NOTE: On Linux, the command-line toolkit is usually installed to `${HOME}/.local/bin` by default.

Make sure to add this directory to your `PATH` environment variable.

### Building From Source

#### Using Make Targets (Linux)

`bash make install `

#### Using Powershell Script (Windows)

Make sure you are allowed to execute scripts on your system then run: `ps .\install.ps1 `

#### Building Manually

  1. Install prerequisites:

` python -m pip install wheel `

  1. Build a wheel:

` python bdist_wheel `

  1. Install the wheel manually from outside the repository:

    On Linux, run:

    ` python -m pip install Polygraphy/dist/polygraphy-*-py2.py3-none-any.whl `

    On Windows, using Powershell, run:

    `ps $wheel_path = gci -Name Polygraphy\dist python -m pip install Polygraphy\dist\$wheel_path `

    NOTE: It is strongly recommended to install the `colored` module for colored output from Polygraphy, as this can greatly improve readability: ` python -m pip install colored `

### Installing Dependencies

Polygraphy has no hard-dependencies on other Python packages. However, much of the functionality included does require other Python packages.

#### Automatically Installing Dependencies

It’s non-trivial to determine all the packages that will be required ahead of time, since it depends on exactly what functionality is being used.

To make this easier, Polygraphy can optionally automatically install or upgrade dependencies at runtime, as they are needed. To enable this behavior, set the POLYGRAPHY_AUTOINSTALL_DEPS environment variable to 1 or polygraphy.config.AUTOINSTALL_DEPS = True using the Python API.

NOTE: By default, dependencies will be installed using the current interpreter, and may overwrite existing

packages. The default installation command, which is `python -m pip install`, can be overriden by setting the `POLYGRAPHY_INSTALL_CMD` environment variable, or setting `polygraphy.config.INSTALL_CMD` using the Python API.

If you’d like Polygraphy to prompt you before automatically installing or upgrading pacakges, set the POLYGRAPHY_ASK_BEFORE_INSTALL environment variable to 1 or polygraphy.config.ASK_BEFORE_INSTALL = True using the Python API.

#### Installing Manually

Each backend directory includes a requirements.txt file that specifies the minimum set of packages it depends on. This does not necessarily include all packages required for all the functionality provided by the backend, but does serve as a good starting point.

You can install the requirements for whichever backends you’re interested in with: `bash python -m pip install -r polygraphy/backend/<name>/requirements.txt `

If additional packages are required, warnings or errors will be logged. You can install the additional packages manually with: `bash python -m pip install <package_name> `
