UPDATE v0.2 NVIDIA GPU Powerlimit Setup

This is just a short post to announce a more usable version of the NVIDIA GPU powerlimit setup script that I released a few months ago. This update to version 0.2 uses an interactive mode to set GPU powerlimits and optionally setup a systemd unit file to set these limits on subsequent reboots.

NVIDIA GPU Power Limit vs Performance

This post presents testing data showing that power-limit reduction on NVIDIA GPUs have give significant benefits for both high wattage and lower wattage GPUs. Power-limit vs Performance data is presented for 1-4 A5000 and 1-4 RTX3090 GPUs.

NVIDIA GPU Powerlimit Systemd Setup Script

In this post I am referencing a Bash shell script I recently put together for setting up automatic NVIDIA GPU power-limit lowering at system boot. This allows a reliable way to configure and maintain multi-GPU systems for stable operation under heavy load.

TensorFlow Installation CPU version

TensorFlow is a very powerful numerical computing framework. However, like any large research level program it can be challenging to install and configure. In this post I’ll try to give some guidance on relatively easy ways to get started with TensorFlow. I’ll only look at relatively simple “CPU only” Installs with “standard” Python and Anaconda Python in this post. (I also have a quick test with Intel Python.)

TensorFlow Introduction What is TensorFlow

TensorFlow is on it’s way to becoming the “standard” framework for machine learning. There are many reasons for that, and, it is not just for machine learning! In this post I’ll give a descriptive introduction to TensorFlow. This is the first post in a series on how to work with TensorFlow. Hopefully after reading thsi you will have a better understanding of the What? and Why? of TensorFlow.
