Houdini + redshift + solaris/usd gpu affinity

Hi everyone! i am seeing quite a few SOLARIS + HOUDINI related questions here already ; )

i am also testing out SOLARIS before implementing into production.

i am having difficulty with setting up GPU AFFINITY.

i have a single RENDER NODE with 2 x RTX3090 installed. and when i render animation, found GPU AFFINITY is so much faster (1 GPU per each frame, instead of 2 GPU per frame).

so i have setup deadline submission with GPU affinity of 1 per task,

DEADLINE will take on 2 task but will render both of those task on GPU0 only.

anybody know if rendering USD + REDSHIFT with GPU AFFINITY possible?

Thank you in advance

found the reason,

in SOLARIS/LOPS, in RENDER_SETTINGS node, at the very end of REDSHIFT settings tab, there is a TAB called CONFIGS (which i don’t remember seeing in HOUDINI context).

here as default, only GPU0 is enabled.

once i activated GPU1 as well, GPU affinity is working fine as intended.

for anybody else who might run into this issue.

Great good to know, we have been struggling with GPU affinity even without SOLARIS/LOPS.

may i ask how you are submitting to Deadline from the Stage/Lops kontext, i thought its not supported yet? Are you using Houdini 18.5?

Would really appreciate any help/hints on how to get Solaris/Lops going with deadline and redshift
