Openvino has 16 cores

Hello, I learned that openvino has 16 kernels, and I want to know how to make full use of these kernels and how to get the utilization of these kernels.For example, I use openvino to implement the detection algorithm, and I want to use a nerve rod to connect four channels of video to process. Could these cores help me?How to use it?Thank you very much!

Dear Monica,

From where did you learn this ?

I learned that openvino has 16 kernels

As I mentioned in your other post I am not sure what you mean by nerve rods or neural rods.  

Please take a look at some OpenVino documentation (below links). OpenVino does support many object detection and image segmentation applications:

http://docs.openvinotoolkit.org/latest/_docs_IE_DG_Samples_Overview.html

http://docs.openvinotoolkit.org/latest/_docs_MO_DG_Deep_Learning_Model_Optimizer_DevGuide.html

Thanks for considering OpenVino. Hope it helps !

Hello, the neural computing stick I mentioned earlier refers to NCS2. In addition, I have 16 core information in NCS2. See the link https://software.intel.com/zh-cn/articles/performance-optimization-for-inference-using-intel-neural-....

I use an NCS2 to connect four-way video. Does NCS2 support it?

Dear Monica,

I see what you mean. You meant 16 shave-cores on an NCS2. Unfortunately, I can't state with certainty that four-way video would work well on NCS2. I can refer you to the following forum post however, where there is discussion about ncs2 cameras. Many suggestions are given by community members which you may find helpful:

Thanks for considering OpenVino !

Thank you for your reply. I have another question to ask: Does NCS2 support multiple models running at the same time? Can you provide some relevant information? Thank you very much.

Dear Monica, Zhao,

Indeed you can run a model per shave (equivalent to a "logical core"). So, yes, you may run multiple models on an NCS2 stick.

If you're going to build a 4-way video system, you may have better luck with something like this though:

Or at least multiple NCS-2 sticks. Yes you can run multiple models on an NCS-2 but obviously performance would be better if you run one model per VPU.

Thanks,

Shubha

Hello, thank you very much for your reply.Yes, I want to build a four-way video system, and at the same time target detection of four-way video, and I want to use an NCS2 implementation.As you know, NCS2 is only responsible for inference in this system. Can NCS2 accept four-way requests at the same time?In addition, as mentioned earlier, there are 16 computing cores in the NCS. Are these cores enough to be specified independently? How can I get the utilization of the cores?Looking forward to your reply.

When I executed the above code, there was an error:

[xcb] Unknown request in queue while dequeuing
[xcb] Most likely this is a multi-threaded client and XInitThreads has not been called
[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
python3: ../../src/xcb_io.c:179:dequeue_pending_request: 假设 ‘!xcb_xlib_unknown_req_in_deq’ 失败。
 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is this because NCS2 uses threads? How should I solve it? I look forward to your reply.
