Vigostral 7B Chat - GGUF


This repo contains GGUF format model files for bofeng huang's Vigostral 7B Chat.

About GGUF

GGUF is a new format introduced by the llama.cpp team on August 21st 2023. It is a replacement for GGML, which is no longer supported by llama.cpp.

Here is an incomplate list of clients and libraries that are known to support GGUF:

  • llama.cpp. The source project for GGUF. Offers a CLI and a server option.
  • text-generation-webui, the most widely used web UI, with many features and powerful extensions. Supports GPU acceleration.
  • KoboldCpp, a fully featured web UI, with GPU accel across all platforms and GPU architectures. Especially good for story telling.
  • LM Studio, an easy-to-use and powerful local GUI for Windows and macOS (Silicon), with GPU acceleration.
  • LoLLMS Web UI, a great web UI with many interesting and unique features, including a full model library for easy model selection.
  • Faraday.dev, an attractive and easy to use character-based chat GUI for Windows and macOS (both Silicon and Intel), with GPU acceleration.
  • ctransformers, a Python library with GPU accel, LangChain support, and OpenAI-compatible AI server.
  • llama-cpp-python, a Python library with GPU accel, LangChain support, and OpenAI-compatible API server.
  • candle, a Rust ML framework with a focus on performance, including GPU support, and ease of use.

These quantised GGUFv2 files are compatible with llama.cpp from August 27th onwards, as of commit d0cee0d

They are also compatible with many third party UIs and libraries - please see the list at the top of this README.

Explanation of quantisation methods

Click to see details

The new methods available are:

  • GGML_TYPE_Q2_K - "type-1" 2-bit quantization in super-blocks containing 16 blocks, each block having 16 weight. Block scales and mins are quantized with 4 bits. This ends up effectively using 2.5625 bits per weight (bpw)
  • GGML_TYPE_Q3_K - "type-0" 3-bit quantization in super-blocks containing 16 blocks, each block having 16 weights. Scales are quantized with 6 bits. This end up using 3.4375 bpw.
  • GGML_TYPE_Q4_K - "type-1" 4-bit quantization in super-blocks containing 8 blocks, each block having 32 weights. Scales and mins are quantized with 6 bits. This ends up using 4.5 bpw.
  • GGML_TYPE_Q5_K - "type-1" 5-bit quantization. Same super-block structure as GGML_TYPE_Q4_K resulting in 5.5 bpw
  • GGML_TYPE_Q6_K - "type-0" 6-bit quantization. Super-blocks with 16 blocks, each block having 16 weights. Scales are quantized with 8 bits. This ends up using 6.5625 bpw

Refer to the Provided Files table below to see what files use which methods, and how.

vigostral-7b-chat.Q5_K_S.gguf Q5_K_S 5 5.00 GB 7.50 GB large, low quality loss - recommended
vigostral-7b-chat.Q5_K_M.gguf Q5_K_M 5 5.13 GB 7.63 GB large, very low quality loss - recommended
vigostral-7b-chat.Q6_K.gguf Q6_K 6 5.94 GB 8.44 GB very large, extremely low quality loss
vigostral-7b-chat.Q8_0.gguf Q8_0 8 7.70 GB 10.20 GB very large, extremely low quality loss - not recommended

Note: the above RAM figures assume no GPU offloading. If layers are offloaded to the GPU, this will reduce RAM usage and use VRAM instead.

How to download GGUF files

Note for manual downloaders: You almost never want to clone the entire repo! Multiple different quantisation formats are provided, and most users only want to pick and download a single file.

The following clients/libraries will automatically download models for you, providing a list of available models to choose from:

  • LM Studio
  • LoLLMS Web UI
  • Faraday.dev

In text-generation-webui

Under Download Model, you can enter the model repo: TheBloke/Vigostral-7B-Chat-GGUF and below it, a specific filename to download, such as: vigostral-7b-chat.Q4_K_M.gguf.

Then click Download.

On the command line, including multiple files at once

I recommend using the huggingface-hub Python library:

pip3 install huggingface-hub

Then you can download any individual model file to the current directory, at high speed, with a command like this:

huggingface-cli download TheBloke/Vigostral-7B-Chat-GGUF vigostral-7b-chat.Q4_K_M.gguf --local-dir . --local-dir-use-symlinks False
More advanced huggingface-cli download usage

You can also download multiple files at once with a pattern:

huggingface-cli download TheBloke/Vigostral-7B-Chat-GGUF --local-dir . --local-dir-use-symlinks False --include='*Q4_K*gguf'

For more documentation on downloading with huggingface-cli, please see: HF -> Hub Python Library -> Download files -> Download from the CLI.

To accelerate downloads on fast connections (1Gbit/s or higher), install hf_transfer:

pip3 install hf_transfer

And set environment variable HF_HUB_ENABLE_HF_TRANSFER to 1:

HF_HUB_ENABLE_HF_TRANSFER=1 huggingface-cli download TheBloke/Vigostral-7B-Chat-GGUF vigostral-7b-chat.Q4_K_M.gguf --local-dir . --local-dir-use-symlinks False

Windows Command Line users: You can set the environment variable by running set HF_HUB_ENABLE_HF_TRANSFER=1 before the download command.

Example llama.cpp command

Make sure you are using llama.cpp from commit d0cee0d or later.

./main -ngl 32 -m vigostral-7b-chat.Q4_K_M.gguf --color -c 2048 --temp 0.7 --repeat_penalty 1.1 -n -1 -p "<s>[INST] <<SYS>>\nVous êtes Vigogne, un assistant IA créé par Zaion Lab. Vous suivez extrêmement bien les instructions. Aidez autant que vous le pouvez.\n<</SYS>>\n\n{prompt} [/INST]"

Change -ngl 32 to the number of layers to offload to GPU. Remove it if you don't have GPU acceleration.

Change -c 2048 to the desired sequence length. For extended sequence models - eg 8K, 16K, 32K - the necessary RoPE scaling parameters are read from the GGUF file and set by llama.cpp automatically.

If you want to have a chat-style conversation, replace the -p <PROMPT> argument with -i -ins

For other parameters and how to use them, please refer to the llama.cpp documentation

How to run in text-generation-webui

Further instructions here: text-generation-webui/docs/llama.cpp.md.

How to run from Python code

You can use GGUF models from Python using the llama-cpp-python or ctransformers libraries.

How to load this model in Python code, using ctransformers

First install the package

Run one of the following commands, according to your system:

# Base ctransformers with no GPU acceleration
pip install ctransformers
# Or with CUDA GPU acceleration
pip install ctransformers[cuda]
# Or with AMD ROCm GPU acceleration (Linux only)
CT_HIPBLAS=1 pip install ctransformers --no-binary ctransformers
# Or with Metal GPU acceleration for macOS systems only
CT_METAL=1 pip install ctransformers --no-binary ctransformers

Simple ctransformers example code

from ctransformers import AutoModelForCausalLM

# Set gpu_layers to the number of layers to offload to GPU. Set to 0 if no GPU acceleration is available on your system.
llm = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained("TheBloke/Vigostral-7B-Chat-GGUF", model_file="vigostral-7b-chat.Q4_K_M.gguf", model_type="mistral", gpu_layers=50)

print(llm("AI is going to"))

How to use with LangChain

Here are guides on using llama-cpp-python and ctransformers with LangChain:

Prompt Template

We used a prompt template adapted from the chat format of Llama-2.

You can apply this formatting using the chat template through the apply_chat_template() method.

from transformers import AutoTokenizer

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("bofenghuang/vigostral-7b-chat")

conversation = [
    {"role": "user", "content": "Bonjour ! Comment ça va aujourd'hui ?"},
    {"role": "assistant", "content": "Bonjour ! Je suis une IA, donc je n'ai pas de sentiments, mais je suis prêt à vous aider. Comment puis-je vous assister aujourd'hui ?"},
    {"role": "user", "content": "Quelle est la hauteur de la Tour Eiffel ?"},
    {"role": "assistant", "content": "La Tour Eiffel mesure environ 330 mètres de hauteur."},
    {"role": "user", "content": "Comment monter en haut ?"},

print(tokenizer.apply_chat_template(conversation, tokenize=False, add_generation_prompt=True))

You will get

# 1st round
response, history = chat("Un escargot parcourt 100 mètres en 5 heures. Quelle est sa vitesse ?", history=None)
# Pour calculer la vitesse d'un escargot qui parcourt 100 mètres en 5 heures, nous devons diviser la distance parcourue par le temps écoulé. Voici comment procédons :
# Vitesse = Distance / Temps
# Dans ce cas, la distance est de 100 mètres et le temps est de 5 heures. Donc, nous avons :
# Vitesse = 100 mètres / 5 heures
# Vitesse = 20 mètres par heure
# L'escargot parcourt donc une vitesse de 20 mètres par heure.

# 2nd round
response, history = chat("Quand il peut dépasser le lapin ?", history=history)
# Malheureusement, je ne peux pas répondre à cette question car elle contient des informations inexactes ou incorrectes. La vitesse de l'escargot est de 20 mètres par heure, tandis que la vitesse du lapin n'est pas mentionnée dans votre question initiale. Pour comparer les vitesses des deux animaux, nous aurions besoin de connaître la vitesse du lapin.

# 3rd round
response, history = chat("Écris une histoire imaginative qui met en scène une compétition de course entre un escargot et un lapin.", history=history)
# Il était une fois deux athlètes extraordinaires : un escargot nommé Escargo et un lapin appelé Lapin Rapide. Un jour, ils ont décidé de participer à une grande course pour déterminer qui était le plus rapide des deux. Tout le monde était curieux de savoir qui serait le gagnant, car ils étaient tous émerveillés par la vitesse de ces deux champions.
# La course commença dans une forêt dense, avec Escargo départageant un peu lentement, car il faut être prudent lorsqu'on est escargot. Mais au fur et à mesure qu'il avançait, il commença à ralentir encore plus. Les spectateurs commencèrent à pencher pour Lapin Rapide, qui fonçait rapidement vers la ligne d'arrivée.
# Mais soudain, Escargo se transforma en une force incroyable. Au lieu de marcher lentement comme un escargot, il courait à toute allure, faisant preuve d'une vitesse surprenante. Les spectateurs essayaient de se remémorer leurs notes de mathématiques pour calculer sa vélocité actuelle.
# Pendant ce temps, Lapin Rapide ralentissait légèrement, trouvant l'air frais trop confortable pour continuer à courir aussi vite. Il décida alors de prendre quelques pauses pour profiter de son environnement.
# Escargo continuait à courir à toute vitesse, en dépit de son handicap d'être un escargot. Les spectateurs étaient émerveillés par sa persévérance et sa volonté de gagner. Finalement, Escargo franchit la ligne d'arrivée en premier, et tous criaurent en joie.
# Les habitants de la forêt décidèrent de lui décerner le titre d'"athlète le plus courageux" pour sa performance incroyable. Quant à Lapin Rapide, il fut content de sa deuxième place, se disant simplement que les pauses étaient bien plus agréables que la compétition. Et tous vécurent heureux et satisfaits de cette course mémorable.

# This may take 5-10 minutes.
# pip install vllm

# Start server for Vigostral-Chat models
python -m vllm.entrypoints.openai.api_server --model bofenghuang/vigostral-7b-chat

# List models
# curl http://localhost:8000/v1/models

Query the model using the openai python package.

import openai

# Modify OpenAI's API key and API base to use vLLM's API server.
openai.api_key = "EMPTY"
openai.api_base = "http://localhost:8000/v1"

# First model
models = openai.Model.list()
model = models["data"][0]["id"]

# Chat completion API
chat_completion = openai.ChatCompletion.create(
        {"role": "user", "content": "Parle-moi de toi-même."},
print("Chat completion results:", chat_completion)


Vigogne is still under development, and there are many limitations that have to be addressed. Please note that it is possible that the model generates harmful or biased content, incorrect information or generally unhelpful answers.
