No running process found - GPU UBUNTU 16.04.6

Hi everyone,

I am looking for some assistance to install properly and run processes on a GPU. Currently I have a message saying “No running processes found”.

The server is a ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS. I know the server has an Intel Xeon Silver 4110 (nproc=8). I installed Unity on this server. I am new to GPU and ubuntu. Here is the server status:

ls /usr/share/xsessions/

gnome-flashback-compiz.desktop gnome-flashback-metacity.desktop ubuntu.desktop

please note that originally there was no desktop installed, so: ls -l /usr/share/xsessions/

ls: cannot access ‘/usr/share/xsessions/’: No such file or directory

lspci |grep 3D

Displays nothings

lsb_release -a

No LSB modules are available.

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
