ray.util.get_current_placement_group() PlacementGroup | None[source]#

Get the current placement group which a task or actor is using.

It returns None if there’s no current placement group for the worker. For example, if you call this method in your driver, it returns None (because drivers never belong to any placement group).

    # This returns the placement group the task f belongs to.
    # It means this pg is identical to the pg created below.

pg = ray.util.placement_group([{"CPU": 2}])
assert ray.get(f.options(
            placement_group=pg)).remote()) == pg

# Driver doesn't belong to any placement group,
# so it returns None.
assert get_current_placement_group() is None

Placement group object.

None if the current task or actor wasn’t created with any placement group.
