NAME

nvidia::ml - Perl bindings to NVML, the NVIDIA Management Library

SYNOPSIS

    use nvidia::ml qw(:all);
 
    nvmlInit();
 
    ($ret, $version) = nvmlSystemGetDriverVersion();
    die nvmlErrorString($ret) unless $ret == $nvidia::ml::bindings::NVML_SUCCESS;
    print "Driver version: " . $version . "\n";
 
    ($ret, $count) = nvmlDeviceGetCount();
    die nvmlErrorString($ret) unless $ret == $nvidia::ml::bindings::NVML_SUCCESS;
 
    for ($i=0; $i<$count; $i++)
    {
        ($ret, $handle) = nvmlDeviceGetHandleByIndex($i);
        next if $ret != $nvidia::ml::bindings::NVML_SUCCESS;
     
        ($ret, $speed) = nvmlDeviceGetFanSpeed($handle);
        next if $ret != $nvidia::ml::bindings::NVML_SUCCESS;
        print "Device " . $i . " fan speed: " . $speed . "%\n";
     
        ($ret, $info) = nvmlDeviceGetMemoryInfo($handle);
        next if $ret != $nvidia::ml::bindings::NVML_SUCCESS;
        $total = ($info->{"total"} / 1024 / 1024);
        print "Device " . $i . " total memory: " . $total . " MB\n";
    }
 
    nvmlShutdown();

DESCRIPTION

Provides a Perl interface to GPU management and monitoring functions.

This is a wrapper around the NVML library. For information about the NVML library, see the NVML documentation.

REQUIRES

Exporter

EXPORTS

This module has no exports. To add functions and constants to your namespace use: use nvidia::ml qw(:all);

METHODS

See EXPORTS and NVML documentation. Perl methods wrap NVML functions, implemented in a C shared library. The functions use is the same with the following exceptions:

Perl methods accept the input arguments of the C function it wraps only. All C function output parameters are returned after the return code, left to right
 C:
 nvmlReturn_t nvmlDeviceGetEccMode(nvmlDevice_t device,
                                   nvmlEnableState_t *current,
                                   nvmlEnableState_t *pending);
 Perl:
 ($ret, $current, $pending) = nvmlDeviceGetEccMode($device); 
Perl handles string buffer creation
 C:
 nvmlReturn_t nvmlSystemGetDriverVersion(char* version,
                                         unsigned int length);
 Perl:
 ($ret, $version) = nvmlSystemGetDriverVersion();
C structs are converted to Perl hashes, nested as needed
 C:
 nvmlReturn_t DECLDIR nvmlDeviceGetMemoryInfo(nvmlDevice_t device,
                                              nvmlMemory_t *memory);
 typedef struct nvmlMemory_st {
     unsigned long long total;
     unsigned long long free;
     unsigned long long used;
 } nvmlMemory_t;
 Perl:
 ($ret, $memory) = nvmlDeviceGetMemoryInfo($device);
 print "Total memory " . $memory->{"total"} . "\n";
 print "Used memory " . $memory->{"used"} . "\n";
 print "Free memory " . $memory->{"free"} . "\n";

VARIABLES

See EXPORTS and NVML documentation. All NVML constants and enums are exposed.
