Paddlepaddle uses multi process error reporting “(External) CUDA error (3), initialization error.” solution.

When using paddlepaddle to train the model, the model training is over, but the GPU memory is still occupied, which will affect the next training problem. In order to automatically release GPU memory after the end of model training, referring to Tensorflow’s method of releasing memory by multi process, paddlepaddle’s model training can be carried out in multi processes, so that GPU resources can be released automatically after the training process is finished.

But sometimes, when you use multiprocessing to train paddlepaddle models, you sometimes encounter them.

CUDA error(3), initialization error.

Error prompt for.

Referring to paddlepaddle’s issue discussion on GitHub, it is found that all modules related to paddle are placed in multiprocessing import and do not have import outside of many processes. These modules can run normally, so that the corresponding resources will be released automatically after the process is completed.
