The computer is Dell PowerEdge T640 with one Telsa T4.
I follow the instruction on cuda manual and use cuda_10.1.105_418.39_linux.run to install Nvidia driver and CUDA environment.
It works well on Ubuntu desktop 18.04. I obtain the device status using nvidia-smi command. The power consumption is only about 10 watts when there are no CUDA tasks.
However, the driver doesn’t work well on ubuntu server 18.04. When I reboot the system, all of the fans of the computer always keep at high speed before user login to the OS and run nvidia-smi command. On the other side, the fans’ speed turns down but the output of nvidia-smi shows that the power consumption is about 30 watts (three times of that on desktop version) after I login to the OS.
How to check what is the problem?
Looking forward to your kind advice.
