A working example of GPU passthrough in VMware

Post by gerdesj » Thu Aug 06, 2020 5:46 pm

I have just written this: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/GPU_passthrough_in_VMWare

The process was pretty traumatic and involved a lot of work-arounds culled from all over the place, which I have documented. I am getting a significant reduction in memory and CPU usage at last.

From what I understand a Dell Poweredge R710 GEN 2 will do GPU passthrough not GEN 1
