NVIDIA
DGX-1 with opengl
We are planning to use the V100 GPUS from a DGX-1 system in graphical mode to run OpenGL applications in Ubuntu 16.04. Based on the post from [url]https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1028426/?comment=5246029#[/url], we know it is possible using the GRID license. I have several questions: 1. Is it possible to run just few V100 GPUS in compute mode and the rest in graphical mode at the same time? 2. The installation of the GRID license: Does it follow the same procedure as for other Tesla cards? 3. Where can I get a GRID license? Thank you!

Hi, DGX-1 is not "GRID enabled" as this is not a certified hardware yet. http://www.nvidia.com/object/grid-certified-servers.html Currently the use case for DGX is AI/DL and not GRID. This might change in the future but for now you cannot use a DGX-1. For vGPU you would need a license server and within the VMs you assign the license server details in the NV control panel. You could get the licenses from the OEMs or from NPN partners. Best regards Simon
