Performance analysis for TX2

Hi everyone,

I am running a caffe application on my jetson and I am measuring the throughput I get from it. I notice that for the initial seconds (about 20seconds) my fps is rather low and then it finally goes up and stays there. Do you happen to have some insights why that is happening?

I thank you for the support.

By default, TX2 would throttle its own CPU/GPU clock speed to conserve power. When you ran the caffe application, TX2 would see the need to increase CPU/GPU clock speed gradually until it reached the maximum.

You could force TX2 to always run in maximum performance mode by:

sudo nvpmodel -m 0
sudo /home/nvidia/
