How to create an Exectuable Network (exec_net) faster?

Reading the network and loading it into an executable network takes from 3 to 11 seconds for me, depending on the device. But for my application, I may need to restart my program multiple times and I can't afford this much overhead. 

So how can I shorten the time needed for this?

 

P.S: I also tested exporting the exec_net and  then importing it, but importing of the network seems to take even a longer time.

Hi Hesam,


Thanks for reaching out to us.


In order to shorten the load time, I would suggest you compile the IR model into blob file and then import blob file instead of IR model. Just a disclaimer that not all IR models can be compiled into blob file.


You may refer to this article:
