Enable multi-gpus for a single job on workstation

open

#1

Hi,

On my workstation:
cryoSparc v.2.12.4
OS: CentOS 7.5

I set the env variable:

[cryosparc_user@dubochet ~]$ export -p
declare -x CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=“0,1”

And check all the gpus configued for cryoSparc to make sure.

In [1]: {t[‘hostname’]:t[‘resource_slots’][‘GPU’] for t in cli.get_scheduler_targets()}
Out[1]: {u’dubochet’: [0, 1]}

However, the Queue Dialog does not display the list of gpus to select. It only says “GPUs: 2”

As a result, I cannot not specify multi-gpus to run. The job only runs with one default gpu 0. Could anyone show me how to allocate multi-gpus to a single job (Refinement)? Can multi-gpus share their memory to increase memory capacity to handle large box-size (similar to Relion)?
Thanks.

Hi @mizz_em,

The Homogenous Refinement will only use 1 GPU to run. You cannot select more than one GPU to allocate this job to.

On the other hand, it looks like your “Run on specific GPU” page is missing your GPU information. Can you go to a terminal and run cryosparcm cli "get_gpu_info()" && cryosparcm log command_core and paste the output?

Hi, I have a similar problem so I’m jumping in here. See the same issue with not being able to schedule to a GPU even though it cryosparc seems to see all 4 of our GPUs. We see the same dialog with 4 GPUs recognized on our workstation but no check boxes and the “You need to select…” error message.

cryosparcm cli "get_gpu_info()" returns “None” so I assume that’s the start of my problem?

Thanks for the help!


#4

Hi @fredrward,

Can you send screenshots of the page that doesn’t show checkboxes? Please note you’ll still be able to run GPU jobs by queuing to lanes instead. Can you also send the output of cryosparcm cli "get_gpu_info()" && cryosparcm log command_core


#5

Thanks for getting back to us, sorry for the delay.

Here’s the screen showing 4 GPUs but no way to select them:

Here’s the outputs you requested: Thank you!
cryosparcm cli "get_gpu_info()"
None
cryosparcm log command_core
