script used for NVIDIA Deep Learning Inference Performance

Hi all, could you please provide the script used to get the NVIDIA Deep Learning Inference TensorRT Performance shown in this link?:

https://developer.nvidia.com/deep-learning-performance-training-inference

Hello,

Data is from our monthly performance baselines. Unfortunately, I cannot share the infrastructure for that beyond what is already described in the blog. All benchmarks are using the standard examples that’s shipped with each container.

For example :
trtexec for the CNN performance
sampleNMT for the RNN performance data

regards,
NVES

Hi NVES,

What is the location of the script trtexec within the container image nvcr.io/nvidia/tensorflow:18.10-py3
?, I can’t find it.

Also, does it use direct tensorRT or integrated tensorflow-tensorrt?

never mind, I have found it within the container image tensorrt 18.10-py3. It uses direct tensorrt. Thanks

hi NVES, could you please provide a command line sample to run resnet50 network with synthetic data as described in the blog, using the trtexec script for CNN performance?. I have used the below command but don’t see a flag to specify synthetic data :

./trtexec --uff=/workspace/tensorrt/python/data/resnet50/resnet50-infer-5.uff --output=Binary_3 --uffInput=Input_0,1,28,28 --useDLA=1 --int8 --allowGPUFallback

Also , I am getting the below errors:
tracefile

uff: /workspace/tensorrt/python/data/resnet50/resnet50-infer-5.uff
output: prob
uffInput: input_tensor,3,256,256
useDLA: 1
int8
allowGPUFallback
UFFParser: Parser error: input: Invalid number of Dimensions 0
Engine could not be created
Engine could not be created

I am running the test from the container image tensorrt 18.10-py3, Driver Version: 410.72, 10.0, GPU T4

WORKING!.

Command used:

./trtexec --uff=/workspace/tensorrt/python/data/resnet50/resnet50-infer-5.uff --output=GPU_0/tower_0/Softmax --uffInput=input,3,224,224

Hi all, I ran the test with 128 batch size but I didn’t get similar result as described in the blog.

What flags did you use to get that performance?

Here is the command used:

./trtexec --uff=/workspace/tensorrt/python/data/resnet50/resnet50-infer-5.uff --output=GPU_0/tower_0/Softmax --uffInput=input,3,224,224 --iterations=40 --int8 --batch=128 --device=4 --workspace=1024 --avgRuns=100

Throughput = 128/39.2214 ms = ~3,264 img/s

use the caffe sample to reproduce the benchmarks

unfortunately the perf. is still worse for V100 if TF-TensorRT benchmark is done as shown below - trtexec benchmark and practical workload on TF-TRT has lots of gap :)
