CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY error when running in HETERO mode (-d HETERO: FPGA, CPU).

Hardware/Software Used

Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit 2018 R5

Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with Intel® Arria® 10 FPGA (IEI's Mustang-F100-A10)

 

 

Run pedestrian demo will mall.mp4 video following video tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKH57mvO9k0),

but got errors.

 Takeaways:

Seems to run on CPU, will not run on FPGA due to “OUT OF HOST MEMORY” error, shown below.

 

Questions/Concerns:

·     Not really sure what the performance metric would be on this kind of demo / I don’t know where to output an FPS or other metric

o  Copy from face detection to get fps on pedestrian tracker

·     Works on CPU, does not run on HETERO:FPGA,CPU (error screenshot below)

 

Trying Different Bitstreams

 

·     MobileNet / SqueezeNet / Generic / AlexNet_GoogleNet / ResNet / TinyYolo_SSD300 / VGG error

error1.png

 

 

 

·     ELU / RMNet error

error2.png

 

o  Video pops up briefly then goes away, doesn’t show tracking mechanism

 

 

Notes / Appendix:

 

Code to run, from Release directory: ieisw@ieiswSER0:~/inference_engine_samples/intel64/Release$

Hi,

 

May I know which board and OpenVINO version are you using? If you are using OpenVINO 2018 then could you upgrade it to OpenVINO 2019R1?

Whoops, forgot to put that at the top. Thanks!

Could you upgrade our OpeVINO to 2019R1.1 version?
