How to make use of SWP for GPU?

Hi , I am new to using Jetson Nano. I am facing an issue with my jetpack 4.5.1. When I run the object tracking using GPU, the process is getting killed due to low memory. I have SWP of 8GB. Is it possible to make use of this to run the tracking on GPU and how to do this.

As far as I know linux swap space is not usable directly for GPU device code activities. For GPU device code you have generally 3 options: ordinary device memory, managed memory and host pinned memory. Any of these will depend on your actual Jetson memory (“SoC DRAM”) and cannot make use of linux swap space.

See here, swap space could be viewed as an extension of “pageable host memory”.
