leip evaluate SDK command to evaluate the model you optimized, compiled, and packaged in Step Two. The command line arguments will differ slightly depending on whether you are running inference locally in the SDK Docker container or connecting to a networked device to run inference remotely.
leip evaluate on a GPU enabled device will provide skewed (slow) inference numbers if you do not set up a compute engine cache and pass it by environment variable. Please see the LEIP Evaluate for more details. This feature is not currently supported for running
leip evaluate on a remote target device.
Evaluating Within the SDK Docker Container
Pass the compiled model directly to
leip evaluate along with the test path to evaluate the model entirely within the SDK container. Use the following commands to evaluate if you followed the path and naming conventions used earlier in the tutorial.
Perform the following to evaluate within an x86_64 Docker container with NVIDIA Graphics Card:
# Evaluating Float32: leip evaluate \ --input_path workspace/output/timm-gernet_m/x86_64_cuda/Float32-compile \ --test_path workspace/datasets/open-images-10-classes/eval/dataset_schema.json # Evaluating Int8: leip evaluate \ --input_path workspace/output/timm-gernet_m/x86_64_cuda/Int8-optimize \ --test_path workspace/datasets/open-images-10-classes/eval/dataset_schema.json
x86_64_cuda in the above examples with
x86_64 when evaluating in an x86_64 Docker container without a GPU.
If LEIP Evaluate for a GPU targeted model fails with a
CUDA_ERROR_NO_BINARY_FOR_GPU error, this indicates that the model was optimized/compiled with the wrong
Evaluating with Remote Inference:
leip evaluate in the SDK Docker container with inference performed on the device under test to evaluate on a remote target device. You will first need to set-up your target by installing Latent AI Object Runner (LOR). You will then evaluate using the LRE objects created by
leip pipeline in Step Two. The following examples assume you followed the naming conventions and paths from earlier in the tutorial.
Perform the following for an ARM processor without a GPU:
# Substitute the IP address of your target device for <IP_ADDR> # The default port for LOR is 50051 # Evaluating Float32: leip evaluate \ --input_path workspace/output/timm-gernet_m/aarch64/Float32-package \ --host <IP_ADDR> --port 50051 \ --test_path workspace/datasets/open-images-10-classes/eval/dataset_schema.json # Evaluating Int8: leip evaluate \ --input_path workspace/output/timm-gernet_m/aarch64/Int8-package \ --host <IP_ADDR> --port 50051 \ --test_path workspace/datasets/open-images-10-classes/eval/dataset_schema.json
aarch64 in the above example for an ARM processor with a GPU, x86_64, or x86_64 with a GPU, with
x86_64_cuda as appropriate for your device under test.
It is also possible to test an LRE object with the
leip evaluate inside the Docker container by running the LOR inside the container itself. Launch the LOR within the SDK by calling
python3 -m lor.lor_server to enable the LOR within the SDK.
You will need to expose the LOR port if you want to access the LOR in one container by a
leip evaluate process running in another:
If you use the default port, you can enable this by adding
-p 50051:50051to the
Use the IP address of the Docker container when passing the
Once you have completed evaluating the model on the target, you can either integrate the model into your code for deployment, or try out different models, including training with your own datasets.
