memory_allocated

paddle.device.cuda. memory_allocated ( device=None ) [source]

Return the current size of gpu memory that is allocated to tensor of the given device.

Note

The size of GPU memory allocated to tensor is 256-byte aligned in Paddle, which may be larger than the memory size that tensor actually need. For instance, a float32 tensor with shape [1] in GPU will take up 256 bytes memory, even though storing a float32 data requires only 4 bytes.

Parameters

device (paddle.CUDAPlace or int or str) – The device, the id of the device or the string name of device like ‘gpu:x’. If device is None, the device is the current device. Default: None.

Returns

The current size of gpu memory that is allocated to tensor of the given device, in bytes.

Return type

int

Examples

# required: gpu
import paddle

memory_allocated_size = paddle.device.cuda.memory_allocated(paddle.CUDAPlace(0))
memory_allocated_size = paddle.device.cuda.memory_allocated(0)
memory_allocated_size = paddle.device.cuda.memory_allocated("gpu:0")
