Latency and Device Execution time in MYRIAD

Hi,

I tried running benchmark app for the Mobilenet v1 SSD and it gave me the following latency values for MYRIAD.

Count:      1119 iterations
Duration:   60080.65 ms
Latency:    52.8842 ms
Throughput: 18.91 FPS

However when I check the performance counters (-pc option), I can find the device execution time for all the inference requests is around double the reported latency. I have noticed this for all the classification problems as well.

For Mobilenet v1 SSD, the execution time is 108.26ms

Shouldn't the latency  be same as the device execution time ? Please clarify.

Latency in the benchmark app code is just the median of the observed execution times. But I could find the most observed execution time as 108.26 ms and not 52.8 ms.

Dear V B, Anakha,

According to the benchmark_app doc 

Reported latency value is calculated as a median value of all collected latencies. 

It is not "Latency in the benchmark app code is just the median of the observed execution times." (your original statement)

Also kindly see this note from the same document:

Reported latency value is calculated as a median value of all collected latencies. Reported throughput value is reported in frames per second (FPS) and calculated as a derivative from:

Reported latency in the Sync mode

The total execution time in the Async mode

Please read through this document and feel free to post further questions on this forum.

Thanks,

Shubha

Hi Shubha, 

 

Thanks for the reply. 

However I have a question on what is the device execution time which is observed in the -pc option. ?

Dear V B, Anakha,

The below document tells you exactly what the -pc option delivers.

Hope it helps,

Thanks,
