Redshift GPUs per task bug?


#1

Hi! I’ve noticed one particular issue with setting the GPUs per task.
I have two workstations, with two GPUs in each box. Running Linux Mint, Houdini 17.5.399 (tried across several subversions) and Deadline 10.0.28.2. Redshift 3.0.8.

Normally I submit each job with 1 GPU per task, 2 concurrent tasks. Especially for quick test renders.
But if I go back to the default 1 concurrent task and 0 GPU per task, it will just utilize one GPU. If I go in any monitoring software. I use the nvidia-smi command line tool - only the main GPU will render, while the secondary is idle.

Any tips?
