I have some questions relating to GPU ID selection:1/ My understanding is that GPU ID specifies the GPU card. I believe “Use first available GPU” (-1 in the transcoder template XML) is essentially equivalent to saying “always use card 0”. Is this correct?
2/ What about NVIDIA cards with multiple NVENC cores? Does that change the indexing? Or are both cores auto load balanced?
3/ I understand that there is no platform support for load balancing. It appears that the transcoder template .XML is re-read every time the specific incoming stream starts (no application restart required). WDYT if we were to build a poor-man’s load balancer that changes in the template .XML file based on system conditions? The goal would be to steer the next new stream to the selected GPU.
