MCU with VCA card

Hello,

 

I installed MCU cluster with a vca card

I have the audio/video agents run on the vca nodes

and the rest on the host system

 

I want to verify that hardware acceleration is used in vca nodes

 

video_agent/agent.toml has hardwareAccelerated = true

and I installed Media Server Studio on the node

 

video conference is working but

 

cpu time of video_agent is the same no matter if i enable hardware or not

intel_gpu_top it sows 100% all the time, no matter if there is a video conference or not

 

is it supposed to see videoMixer_hw running when in conference ?

I dont see it and i dont see either videoMixer_sw running

 

I appreciate any help

Thanks

Hi Babis,

     Please follow the steps to get GPU usage information:

1.  ssh to your vca node from E5 host server.

2. cd /opt/intel/mediasdk/tools/metrics_monitor/_bin

3. export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/intel/mediasdk/tools/metrics_monitor/_bin:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

4. ./metrics_monitor

 You will get the GPU usage like RENDER usage, VIDEO0 usage, VIDEO0_E usage, VIDEO2 usage etc. Thanks. --Wenjie.

Hi Babis,

    If you use VCA persistent image, the Media Server Studio is default installed on the image. Thanks. --Wenjie.
