RuntimeError: cuDNN error: CUDNN_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR

created at 10-16-2021 views: 1

It took a day to solve this problem. . . .

Train the code well, change a machine, and report an error.

I thought it was caused by cuda11. I was worried that the cuda version and the pytorch version did not match. I reinstalled it, but the result was not resolved.

Problem phenomenon:

raceback (most recent call last):
  File "train.py", line 100, in <module>
    main(opt)
  File "train.py", line 71, in main

……

  File "/home/xxxx/.local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/torch/nn/modules/conv.py", line 395, in _conv_forward
    return F.conv2d(input, weight, bias, self.stride,
RuntimeError: cuDNN error: CUDNN_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR
You can try to repro this exception using the following code snippet. If that doesn't trigger the error, please include your original repro script when reporting this issue.

import torch
torch.backends.cuda.matmul.allow_tf32 = True
torch.backends.cudnn.benchmark = True
torch.backends.cudnn.deterministic = False
torch.backends.cudnn.allow_tf32 = True
data = torch.randn([1, 64, 80, 144], dtype=torch.float, device='cuda', requires_grad=True)
net = torch.nn.Conv2d(64, 64, kernel_size=[3, 3], padding=[1, 1], stride=[1, 1], dilation=[1, 1], groups=1)
net = net.cuda().float()
out = net(data)
out.backward(torch.randn_like(out))
torch.cuda.synchronize()

    data_type = CUDNN_DATA_FLOAT
    padding = [1, 1, 0]

    nbDims = 4
    dimA = 64, 64, 3, 3,

    output: 0x568120000

Solution

Save the cuda prompt to a file,

import torch
torch.backends.cuda.matmul.allow_tf32 = True
torch.backends.cudnn.benchmark = True
torch.backends.cudnn.deterministic = False
torch.backends.cudnn.allow_tf32 = True
data = torch.randn([1, 64, 80, 144], dtype=torch.float, device='cuda', requires_grad=True)
net = torch.nn.Conv2d(64, 64, kernel_size=[3, 3], padding=[1, 1], stride=[1, 1], dilation=[1, 1], groups=1)
net = net.cuda().float()
out = net(data)
out.backward(torch.randn_like(out))
torch.cuda.synchronize()

Then python runs it, it will report the same error, and then select the switch to make adjustments, and try again to see if it still reports the error.

For my code, modifying the following items will work.

torch.backends.cudnn.benchmark = False

Then put this in front of the problematic code.
