Thank you for your time.

Hi,
I have the same problem : GPU seems to be at 100% and no process are running.
Could you please give a piece of advice to find a solution ? because it slows the general GPU activity.

Best regards.
Benoit

It’s possible that the act of running nvidia-smi can report 100% utilization. This will usually only affect 1 GPU in a multi-GPU setup.

Hi, were you able to fix the issue?
I got stuck with the same problem, and trying to find a solution but still not luck :(

HI there!
Did find a solution to the problem?
I got stuck with the same problem :(

anyone resolve the problem? The GPU cannot use anymore. I always need to restart machine when this happen
