TensorFlow 1 version View source on GitHub

Get if memory growth is enabled for a PhysicalDevice.

tf.config.experimental.get_memory_growth(
    device
)

If memory growth is enabled for a PhysicalDevice, the runtime initialization will not allocate all memory on the device.

For example:

physical_devices = tf.config.list_physical_devices('GPU') 
try: 
  tf.config.experimental.set_memory_growth(physical_devices[0], True) 
  assert tf.config.experimental.get_memory_growth(physical_devices[0]) 
except: 
  # Invalid device or cannot modify virtual devices once initialized. 
  pass 

Args:

  • device: PhysicalDevice to query

Returns:

A boolean indicating the memory growth setting for the PhysicalDevice.

Raises:

  • ValueError: Invalid PhysicalDevice specified.
