GPUtil is a Python module for getting the GPU status from NVIDA GPUs using nvidia-smi. GPUtil locates all GPUs on the computer, determines their availablity and returns a ordered list of available GPUs. Availablity is based upon the current memory consumption and load of each GPU. The module is written with GPU selection for Deep Learning in mind, but it is not task/library specific and it can be applied to any task, where it may be useful to identify available GPUs. NVIDIA GPU with latest NVIDIA driver installed. GPUtil uses the program nvidia-smi to get the GPU status of all available NVIDIA GPUs. nvidia-smi should be installed automatically, when you install your NVIDIA driver.
