OpenACC gpu programming on VMWare


Do you know if it is ever possible to use OpenACC gpu programming on Virtual Machine (VMWare)? I see that use of gpu from virtual machine is not straightforward. I have windows on my host but linux on virtual machine. I would like to test new functionalities of OpenACC for linux platform.

Best Regards,

Hi hyuzuguzel,

It should be possible provided you have a newer NVIDIA device, one that supports a virtual machine. Though, I personally don’t know the specifics on how to configure the VM and/or driver nor have tried using this type of setup. Once the VM is setup correctly, my assumption is that from the program’s perspective, you’re running a on Linux host and it would work the same.
