parallelism

string (int64 format)

Max number of tasks that can run in parallel. Default to min(taskCount, parallel tasks per job limit). See: Job Limits. Field parallelism must be 1 if the schedulingPolicy is IN_ORDER.

schedulingPolicy

enum (SchedulingPolicy)

Scheduling policy for Tasks in the TaskGroup. The default value is AS_SOON_AS_POSSIBLE.

taskEnvironments[]

object (Environment)

An array of environment variable mappings, which are passed to Tasks with matching indices. If taskEnvironments is used then taskCount should not be specified in the request (and will be ignored). Task count will be the length of taskEnvironments.

Tasks get a BATCH_TASK_INDEX and BATCH_TASK_COUNT environment variable, in addition to any environment variables set in taskEnvironments, specifying the number of Tasks in the Task's parent TaskGroup, and the specific Task's index in the TaskGroup (0 through BATCH_TASK_COUNT - 1).

taskCountPerNode

string (int64 format)

Max number of tasks that can be run on a VM at the same time. If not specified, the system will decide a value based on available compute resources on a VM and task requirements.

requireHostsFile

boolean

When true, Batch will populate a file with a list of all VMs assigned to the TaskGroup and set the BATCH_HOSTS_FILE environment variable to the path of that file. Defaults to false. The host file supports up to 1000 VMs.

permissiveSsh

boolean

When true, Batch will configure SSH to allow passwordless login between VMs running the Batch tasks in the same TaskGroup.

runAsNonRoot

boolean

Optional. If not set or set to false, Batch uses the root user to execute runnables. If set to true, Batch runs the runnables using a non-root user. Currently, the non-root user Batch used is generated by OS Login. For more information, see About OS Login.

TaskSpec

Spec of a task

JSON representation
{
  "runnables": [
    {
      object (Runnable)
    }
  ],
  "computeResource": {
    object (ComputeResource)
  },
  "maxRunDuration": string,
  "maxRetryCount": integer,

  },
  "volumes": [
    {
      object (Volume)
    }
  ],
  "environment": {
    object (Environment)
  }
}
Fields
runnables[]

object (Runnable)

The sequence of scripts or containers to run for this Task. Each Task using this TaskSpec executes its list of runnables in order. The Task succeeds if all of its runnables either exit with a zero status or any that exit with a non-zero status have the ignoreExitStatus flag.

Background runnables are killed automatically (if they have not already exited) a short time after all foreground runnables have completed. Even though this is likely to result in a non-zero exit status for the background runnable, these automatic kills are not treated as Task failures.

computeResource

object (ComputeResource)

ComputeResource requirements.

maxRunDuration

string (Duration format)

Maximum duration the task should run. The task will be killed and marked as FAILED if over this limit.

A duration in seconds with up to nine fractional digits, ending with 's'. Example: "3.5s".

maxRetryCount

integer

Maximum number of retries on failures. The default, 0, which means never retry. The valid value range is [0, 10].

lifecyclePolicies[]

object (LifecyclePolicy)

Lifecycle management schema when any task in a task group is failed. Currently we only support one lifecycle policy. When the lifecycle policy condition is met, the action in the policy will execute. If task execution result does not meet with the defined lifecycle policy, we consider it as the default policy. Default policy means if the exit code is 0, exit task. If task ends with non-zero exit code, retry the task with maxRetryCount.

environments
(deprecated)

map (key: string, value: string)

Deprecated: please use environment(non-plural) instead.

An object containing a list of "key": value pairs. Example: { "name": "wrench", "mass": "1.3kg", "count": "3" }.

volumes[]

object (Volume)

Volumes to mount before running Tasks using this TaskSpec.

environment

object (Environment)

Environment variables to set before running the Task.

Runnable

Runnable describes instructions for executing a specific script or container as part of a Task.

JSON representation
{
  "displayName": string,
  "ignoreExitStatus": boolean,
  "background": boolean,
  "alwaysRun": boolean,
  "environment": {
    object (Environment)
  },
  "timeout": string,
  "labels": {
    string: string,
    ...
  },

  // Union field executable can be only one of the following:
  "container": {
    object (Container)
  },
  "script": {
    object (Script)
  },
  "barrier": {
    object (Barrier)
  }
  // End of list of possible types for union field executable.
}
Fields
displayName

string

Optional. DisplayName is an optional field that can be provided by the caller. If provided, it will be used in logs and other outputs to identify the script, making it easier for users to understand the logs. If not provided the index of the runnable will be used for outputs.

ignoreExitStatus

boolean

Normally, a non-zero exit status causes the Task to fail. This flag allows execution of other Runnables to continue instead.

background

boolean

This flag allows a Runnable to continue running in the background while the Task executes subsequent Runnables. This is useful to provide services to other Runnables (or to provide debugging support tools like SSH servers).

alwaysRun

boolean

By default, after a Runnable fails, no further Runnable are executed. This flag indicates that this Runnable must be run even if the Task has already failed. This is useful for Runnables that copy output files off of the VM or for debugging.

The alwaysRun flag does not override the Task's overall maxRunDuration. If the maxRunDuration has expired then no further Runnables will execute, not even alwaysRun Runnables.

environment

object (Environment)

Environment variables for this Runnable (overrides variables set for the whole Task or TaskGroup).

timeout

string (Duration format)

Timeout for this Runnable.

A duration in seconds with up to nine fractional digits, ending with 's'. Example: "3.5s".

labels

map (key: string, value: string)

Labels for this Runnable.

An object containing a list of "key": value pairs. Example: { "name": "wrench", "mass": "1.3kg", "count": "3" }.

Union field executable. The script or container to run. executable can be only one of the following:
container

object (Container)

Container runnable.

script

object (Script)

Script runnable.

barrier

object (Barrier)

Barrier runnable.

Container

Container runnable.

JSON representation
{
  "imageUri": string,
  "commands": [
    string
  ],
  "entrypoint": string,
  "volumes": [
    string
  ],
  "options": string,
  "blockExternalNetwork": boolean,
  "username": string,
  "password": string,
  "enableImageStreaming": boolean
}
Fields
imageUri

string

The URI to pull the container image from.

commands[]

string

Overrides the CMD specified in the container. If there is an ENTRYPOINT (either in the container image or with the entrypoint field below) then commands are appended as arguments to the ENTRYPOINT.

entrypoint

string

Overrides the ENTRYPOINT specified in the container.

volumes[]

string

Volumes to mount (bind mount) from the host machine files or directories into the container, formatted to match docker run's --volume option, e.g. /foo:/bar, or /foo:/bar:ro

If the TaskSpec.Volumes field is specified but this field is not, Batch will mount each volume from the host machine to the container with the same mount path by default. In this case, the default mount option for containers will be read-only (ro) for existing persistent disks and read-write (rw) for other volume types, regardless of the original mount options specified in TaskSpec.Volumes. If you need different mount settings, you can explicitly configure them in this field.

options

string

Arbitrary additional options to include in the "docker run" command when running this container, e.g. "--network host".

blockExternalNetwork

boolean

If set to true, external network access to and from container will be blocked, containers that are with blockExternalNetwork as true can still communicate with each other, network cannot be specified in the container.options field.

username

string

Required if the container image is from a private Docker registry. The username to login to the Docker registry that contains the image.

You can either specify the username directly by using plain text or specify an encrypted username by using a Secret Manager secret: projects/*/secrets/*/versions/*. However, using a secret is recommended for enhanced security.

Caution: If you specify the username using plain text, you risk the username being exposed to any users who can view the job or its logs. To avoid this risk, specify a secret that contains the username instead.

Learn more about Secret Manager and using Secret Manager with Batch.

password

string

Required if the container image is from a private Docker registry. The password to login to the Docker registry that contains the image.

For security, it is strongly recommended to specify an encrypted password by using a Secret Manager secret: projects/*/secrets/*/versions/*.

Warning: If you specify the password using plain text, you risk the password being exposed to any users who can view the job or its logs. To avoid this risk, specify a secret that contains the password instead.

Learn more about Secret Manager and using Secret Manager with Batch.

enableImageStreaming

boolean

Optional. If set to true, this container runnable uses Image streaming.

Use Image streaming to allow the runnable to initialize without waiting for the entire container image to download, which can significantly reduce startup time for large container images.

When enableImageStreaming is set to true, the container runtime is containerd instead of Docker. Additionally, this container runnable only supports the following container subfields: imageUri, commands[], entrypoint, and volumes[]; any other container subfields are ignored.

For more information about the requirements and limitations for using Image streaming with Batch, see the image-streaming sample on GitHub.

Script

To specify an interpreter, please add a #!<interpreter>(also known as [shebang line](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shebang_(Unix))) as the first line of the file.(For example, to execute the script using bash, #!/bin/bash should be the first line of the file. To execute the script usingPython3, #!/usr/bin/env python3 should be the first line of the file.) Otherwise, the file will by default be executed by /bin/sh.

text

string

Shell script text.

To specify an interpreter, please add a #!<interpreter>\n at the beginning of the text.(For example, to execute the script using bash, #!/bin/bash\n should be added. To execute the script usingPython3, #!/usr/bin/env python3\n should be added.) Otherwise, the script will by default be executed by /bin/sh.

Barrier

ComputeResource

Compute resource requirements.

ComputeResource defines the amount of resources required for each task. Make sure your tasks have enough resources to successfully run. If you also define the types of resources for a job to use with the InstancePolicyOrTemplate field, make sure both fields are compatible with each other.

JSON representation
{
  "cpuMilli": string,
  "memoryMib": string,
  "bootDiskMib": string
}
Fields
cpuMilli

string (int64 format)

The milliCPU count.

cpuMilli defines the amount of CPU resources per task in milliCPU units. For example, 1000 corresponds to 1 vCPU per task. If undefined, the default value is 2000.

If you also define the VM's machine type using the machineType in InstancePolicy field or inside the instanceTemplate in the InstancePolicyOrTemplate field, make sure the CPU resources for both fields are compatible with each other and with how many tasks you want to allow to run on the same VM at the same time.

For example, if you specify the n2-standard-2 machine type, which has 2 vCPUs each, you are recommended to set cpuMilli no more than 2000, or you are recommended to run two tasks on the same VM if you set cpuMilli to 1000 or less.

memoryMib

string (int64 format)

Memory in MiB.

memoryMib defines the amount of memory per task in MiB units. If undefined, the default value is 2000. If you also define the VM's machine type using the machineType in InstancePolicy field or inside the instanceTemplate in the InstancePolicyOrTemplate field, make sure the memory resources for both fields are compatible with each other and with how many tasks you want to allow to run on the same VM at the same time.

For example, if you specify the n2-standard-2 machine type, which has 8 GiB each, you are recommended to set memoryMib to no more than 8192, or you are recommended to run two tasks on the same VM if you set memoryMib to 4096 or less.

Disk size in GB.

Non-Boot Disk: If the type specifies a persistent disk, this field is ignored if data_source is set as image or snapshot. If the type specifies a local SSD, this field should be a multiple of 375 GB, otherwise, the final size will be the next greater multiple of 375 GB.

Boot Disk: Batch will calculate the boot disk size based on source image and task requirements if you do not speicify the size. If both this field and the bootDiskMib field in task spec's computeResource are defined, Batch will only honor this field. Also, this field should be no smaller than the source disk's size when the data_source is set as snapshot or image. For example, if you set an image as the data_source field and the image's default disk size 30 GB, you can only use this field to make the disk larger or equal to 30 GB.

diskInterface

string

Local SSDs are available through both "SCSI" and "NVMe" interfaces. If not indicated, "NVMe" will be the default one for local ssds. This field is ignored for persistent disks as the interface is chosen automatically. See https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/disks/persistent-disks#choose_an_interface.

Union field data_source. A data source from which a PD will be created. data_source can be only one of the following:
image

string

  • Specify the image by its family name: projects/{project}/global/images/family/{image_family}
  • Specify the image version: projects/{project}/global/images/{imageVersion}

You can also use Batch customized image in short names. The following image values are supported for a boot disk:

  • batch-debian: use Batch Debian images.
  • batch-centos: use Batch CentOS images.
  • batch-cos: use Batch Container-Optimized images.
  • batch-hpc-centos: use Batch HPC CentOS images.
  • batch-hpc-rocky: use Batch HPC Rocky Linux images.

maxDistance

string (int64 format)

When specified, causes the job to fail if more than maxDistance logical switches are required between VMs. Batch uses the most compact possible placement of VMs even when maxDistance is not specified. An explicit maxDistance makes that level of compactness a strict requirement. Not yet implemented
