Legion is a data-centric parallel programming system for writing portable high performance programs targeted at distributed heterogeneous architectures. Legion presents abstractions which allow programmers to describe properties of program data (e.g. independence, locality). By making the Legion programming system aware of the structure of program data, it can automate many of the tedious tasks programmers currently face, including correctly extracting task- and data-level parallelism and moving data around complex memory hierarchies. A novel mapping interface provides explicit programmer controlled placement of data in the memory hierarchy and assignment of tasks to processors in a way that is orthogonal to correctness, thereby enabling easy porting and tuning of Legion applications to new architectures.


Pull (Download)

To download the latest version of legion run,

docker pull ghcr.io/autamus/legion:latest

or to download a specific version of legion run,

docker pull ghcr.io/autamus/legion:21.03.0


To run the container as an application run,

docker run --rm ghcr.io/autamus/legion legion --version

or to run the container in an interactive session run,

docker run -it --rm ghcr.io/autamus/legion bash

Mounting volumes between the container and your machine

To access files from your machine within the legion container you’ll have to mount them using the -v external/path:internal/path option.

For example,

docker run -v ~/Documents/Data:/Data ghcr.io/autamus/legion legion /Data/myData.csv

which will mount the ~/Documents/Data directory on your computer to the /Data directory within the container.


If you’re looking to use this container in an HPC environment we recommend using Singularity-HPC to use the container just as any other module on the cluster. Check out the SHPC legion container here.
