This page describes a service provided by a retired ACENET system. Most ACENET services are currently provided by national systems, for which please visit https://docs.computecanada.ca.
- CUDA, from NVIDIA, is a parallel computing platform and programming model that harnesses the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU).
- NVidia Quadro FX 5600
- NVidia driver installed is 319.37
- CUDA Toolkit Version: 5.5
- You can run
deviceQueryto see the details.
- NVidia CUDA Zone
- Tutorial at Google Code
- SDK Code Sample
$CUDA/samples- SDK 5.5 code samples
$CUDA/sdk42- SDK 4.2.9 that contains OpenCL code samples
- Usage notes
- The only ACENET machines equipped with GPUs are the four graphics workstations at Mahone. Consequently that's also where the CUDA compiler suite is installed, and nowhere else. Please use the Grid Engine to access these machines. For compiling and testing purposes you can request an interactive job, as in this example:
$ qrsh -l h_rt=3:0:0 -pe openmp 4 -q graphics.q -cwd bash $ module load gcc cuda $ nvcc source.cu -o executable $ ./executable
- For a batch job use
#$ -cwd #$ -l h_rt=1:0:0 #$ -pe openmp 4 #$ -q graphics.q module load gcc cuda ./executable
