NVIDIA TensorRT Inference

This test profile uses any existing system installation of NVIDIA TensorRT for carrying out inference benchmarks with various neural networks.

This test profile requires you have already installed TensorRT to /usr/src/tensorrt.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark system/tensorrt-inference.

Use with caution this test profile is currently marked Experimental.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (NVIDIA TensorRT Inference - Neural Network: AlexNet - Precision: FP16 - Batch Size: 32 - DLA Cores: Disabled) has an average run-time of 4 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
