I have a Jetson TX1 based product I am working on. Since this product will run 24x7 I am using the 24x7 use case mode (UCM2). However, we do some software based video encoding, and using UCM2 reduces the encoding performance in half (i.e. it takes twice as long to encode each frame). Of course I would rather not use software encoding but I don’t have a choice here.
What I would like to do is have a 24x7 use case where the CPU would not be throttled down quite so far. I’m fine with the GPU or other peripherals being throttled down, as we don’t use the GPU at all right now.
The question is, is creating a “hybrid” UCM a reasonable thing to do? Does anybody have a list of things that are being changed when using the 24x7 UCM vs. the non-24x7 UCM?
