I just installed the new CUDA Toolkit 2.2 along with the latest (185.18.08) nvidia driver. We have a Tesla S1070 1U box that is part of a batch system, and for this reason would really like the exclusive compute mode. However, I can’t seem to get nvidia-smi to set it. Here is how I’m running it:
nvidia-smi -g 0 -c 1
and I’ve also tried:
nvidia-smi --gpu=0 --compute-mode-rules=1
When I run it, I then check the compute mode in my program using cudaGetDeviceProperties(), but it never comes back with the exclusive mode. Is there something I’m missing here? The new syntax for compute modes seems to be completely useless. Any insights here woudl be greatly appreciated.
