Ubuntu 22.04: nvidia-persistenced masked since 550

Hello,

we are deploying cuda on Ubuntu 22.04 via the nvidia apt repository. Since the driver series 550, the persistence mode is disabled by default in the systemd unit of nvidia-persistenced, which is delivered via the package nvidia-compute-utils-550. Also, the service has been masked, I don’t know from which script.

Is this intentional? Is the persistence mode depreacated?

Best regards,
Stefan
