Software & Hardware Requirements¶
The current VVAS Video Analytics solution package for data center platform consists of the following software and hardware dependencies.
Supported Host Operating System¶
Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS (Kernel: 5.4.0-135-generic)
Xilinx Runtime (XRT) Version: 2.14.418
APU Petalinux Package version: 2.14.418
V70 Platform Package: xilinx_v70_gen5x8_qdma_base_2
Host Machine: X86 host machine with x16 PCIe slot
AMD Alveo V70 card: AMD Alveo V70 card with ES1 silicon
DMB2 (Alveo programming) cable connected between V70 card and Windows laptop with Vivado 2022.2 installed (Needed only if received V70 card has no pre-loaded image and “lspci -vd 10ee:” is not detecting the card)
To avoid inconsistent failure we recommend disabling the IOMMU of the host system. For example, follow below steps if V70 card is installed on server with AMD CPU.
sudo bash -c 'echo GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="amd_iommu=off" >> /etc/default/grub'
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
