I’m trying to disable a GPU as suggested in this thread here on the forum. Specifically, I’m running:
nvidia-smi -i 0000:xx:00.0 -pm 0 nvidia-smi drain -p 0000:xx:00.0 -m 1
for some value of xx. Well, the first command succeeds (says the device was already not in persistence mode), but the second command gives me:
Failed to parse device specified at the command-line
I don’t understand what this means. Is my syntax wrong? Is nvidia-smi having trouble with the device?
(Note: Also posted here, as I wasn’t sure what’s the more appropriate venue.)
