nvidia-smi "Type" field meaning


My apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere.

What does the “Type” field in the nvidia-smi output mean?

Is there a resource with more rich documentation on the “nvidia-smi” output than can be found in the “-h” documentation?


man nvidia-smi says

Displayed as “C” for Compute Process, “G” for Graphics Process, and “C+G” for the process having both Compute and Graphics contexts.

Hi there,

And when there are more graphics cards in the setup, should all GPU’s be in use as C+G idealy?
