VLLM

LiteLLM supports all models on VLLM.

🚀Code Tutorial

Quick Start

pip install litellm vllm
import litellm 

response = litellm.completion(
model="vllm/facebook/opt-125m", # add a vllm prefix so litellm knows the custom_llm_provider==vllm
messages=messages,
temperature=0.2,
max_tokens=80)

print(response)

Calling hosted VLLM Server

In order to use litellm to call a hosted vllm server add the following to your completion call

  • custom_llm_provider == "openai"
  • api_base = "your-hosted-vllm-server"
import litellm 

response = litellm.completion(
model="openai/facebook/opt-125m", # pass the vllm model name
messages=messages,
api_base="https://hosted-vllm-api.co",
temperature=0.2,
max_tokens=80)

print(response)

Batch Completion

from litellm import batch_completion

model_name = "facebook/opt-125m"
provider = "vllm"
messages = [[{"role": "user", "content": "Hey, how's it going"}] for _ in range(5)]

response_list = batch_completion(
model=model_name,
custom_llm_provider=provider, # can easily switch to huggingface, replicate, together ai, sagemaker, etc.
messages=messages,
temperature=0.2,
max_tokens=80,
)
print(response_list)

Prompt Templates

For models with special prompt templates (e.g. Llama2), we format the prompt to fit their template.

What if we don't support a model you need? You can also specify you're own custom prompt formatting, in case we don't have your model covered yet.

Does this mean you have to specify a prompt for all models? No. By default we'll concatenate your message content to make a prompt (expected format for Bloom, T-5, Llama-2 base models, etc.)

Default Prompt Template

def default_pt(messages):
return " ".join(message["content"] for message in messages)

Custom prompt templates

# Create your own custom prompt template works 
litellm.register_prompt_template(
model="togethercomputer/LLaMA-2-7B-32K",
roles={
"system": {
"pre_message": "[INST] <<SYS>>\n",
"post_message": "\n<</SYS>>\n [/INST]\n"
},
"user": {
"pre_message": "[INST] ",
"post_message": " [/INST]\n"
},
"assistant": {
"pre_message": "\n",
"post_message": "\n",
}
} # tell LiteLLM how you want to map the openai messages to this model
)

def test_vllm_custom_model():
model = "vllm/togethercomputer/LLaMA-2-7B-32K"
response = completion(model=model, messages=messages)
print(response['choices'][0]['message']['content'])
return response
