Tensorflow saved model to tensorRT saved model ... variables directory is empty ?

Hello

I have successfully optimized a tensorflow object detection saved model with tensorrt and loaded it into tensorflow serving 1.13.1.

I noticed the variables directory is empty. Is that to be expected?

Thanks in advance

BTW – I noticed this output during the optimization …

Use standard file APIs to check for files with this prefix.
WARNING:tensorflow:From /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/tensorflow/contrib/tensorrt/python/trt_convert.py:301: convert_variables_to_constants (from tensorflow.python.framework.graph_util_impl) is deprecated and will be removed in a future version.

Hi,

Please provide a small repro package with the original model and the conversion code so we can debug this further.

Thanks,

Hi Nvidia

I happened to attend the Ask the expert session on TensorRT at GTC last week and had my questions answered. Thanks!

(Yes, it is expected that the variables directory is empty.)

Good to hear! Thanks for the update.
