Help with system throttled due to over-current warning

• Hardware Platform Jetson
• DeepStream Version 6.3
• JetPack Version 5.1
• TensorRT Version 5.1

Hi, I’m testing my custom application (YoloV4 and custom neural network), with 16 video streams and when I run it, I get system throttled due to over-current warning, however when I look at jtop and Jetson Power GUI I don’t see current values reaching critical levels, for example:


I’m running Jetson in MAXN power mode

Is there a way to better understand what is causing this warning and if this warning needs to be addressed or is it false positive?

Please run in 20W or 15W mode:

In MAXN mode, all hardware blocks can drain maximum current so it may hit OC while loading is high. Suggest run in 15W or 20W mode to balance between performance and power. Furthermore, you may customize a power mode for the use-case.

Hi again,

since I already tried running in 20W and 15W mode and I don’t get good enough results is there a tutorial for making a custom mode and getting maximum performance for a custom use case?
