             Summary: [Umbrella] Support Vector Engine ( a new acceleration hardware) based
on pluggable device framework
                 Key: YARN-9473
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-9473
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Zhankun Tang


As the heterogeneous computation trend rises, new acceleration hardware like GPU, FPGA is used
to satisfy various requirements.

And a new hardware Vector Engine (VE) which released by NEC company is another example. The
VE is like GPU but has different characteristics. It's suitable for machine learning and HPC
due to better memory bandwidth and no PCIe bottleneck.

Please Check here for more VE details:

As we know, YARN-8851 is a pluggable device framework which provides an easy way to develop
a plugin for such new accelerators. This JIRA proposes to develop a new VE plugin based
on that framework and be implemented as current GPU's "NvidiaGPUPluginForRuntimeV2" plugin.
