Nvinfer Internal data stream error

I created a custom bbox parser for my custom onnx model which I’m using with nvinfer plugin.

Everything works fine when I’m using it as primary detector but when I set the same to secondary it just stops after giving some warnings.

Looks like gst_nvinfer_output_loop is returning GST_FLOW_ERROR that seems to happen when “pushing buffer to downstream element”. There is probably something wrong with the buffer. I would further debug the issue by checking the buffer in nvinfer (sources/gst-plugins/gst-nvinfer/gstnvinfer.cpp).

Could you share your nvinfer config file for further check?
BTW, what’s the resolution of your input and have you do resize in streammux?

Resolution in streammux 1280x720
Config files for pgie and sgie.
pgie.txt (4.0 KB)
sgie.txt (3.5 KB)

Also, I couldn’t reproduce this error on any other model.

What’s the input dims of your pgie/sgie model? I cannot find it in your config files.

For pgie I’m using sample model in redaction sample from Nvidia https://github.com/NVIDIA-AI-IOT/redaction_with_deepstream/tree/master/fd_lpd_model

and for sgie, input dims are 3x200x200

Could you run the engine using trtexec?

Yes. It ran normally using trtexec.

OK, we have similar issue that the scale factor cannot be larger than 16, and we will fix it on next release.
currently can you modify the detected-min-h/detected-min-w of pgie both to lager than 15 since your network resolution is 3 * 200 * 200.

That explains it. Thank you.
