Should I always have jetson_clock enabled when inferring?


When running inference using jetson
There is a guide to enable jetson_clock, right?

Do I have to keep jetson_clock enabled after being deployed to the actual edge?

If you always have jetson_clock enabled
Doesn’t it reduce power consumption or product life?

Thank you.

Enabling jetson-clocks gives you best performance.

For example you should enable it when benchmarking to have reproducible results.

Regarding power consumption it does quite the opposite of a reduction as CPU and GPU frequency clock is set and fixed to highest possible value. You should not notice board temperature going up (and fan starts spinning at full speed in case you have one installed).
