scatter(tensor, devices=None, chunk_sizes=None, dim=0, streams=None, *, out=None)[source]¶
Scatters tensor across multiple GPUs.
tensor (Tensor) – tensor to scatter. Can be on CPU or GPU.
devices (Iterable[torch.device, str or int], optional) – an iterable of GPU devices, among which to scatter.
chunk_sizes (Iterable[int], optional) – sizes of chunks to be placed on each device. It should match
devicesin length and sums to
tensor.size(dim). If not specified,
tensorwill be divided into equal chunks.
dim (int, optional) – A dimension along which to chunk
streams (Iterable[Stream], optional) – an iterable of Streams, among which to execute the scatter. If not specified, the default stream will be utilized.
out (Sequence[Tensor], optional, keyword-only) – the GPU tensors to store output results. Sizes of these tensors must match that of
tensor, except for
dim, where the total size must sum to
Exactly one of
