For A-series NVIDIA vGPU deployments, one vApps license is required for each concurrentuser, but licensing for only one of these users is enforced through software. Licensing forthe remaining users is enforced through the EULA.2. For C-series NVIDIA vGPU deployments, one license per vGPU assigned to a VM is enforcedthrough software. This license is valid for up to eight vGPU instances on a single GPU or forthe assignment to a VM of one vGPU that is assigned all the physical GPU's frame buffer.When multiple C-series vGPUs are assigned to a single VM, one license for each vGPUassigned to the VM is required. One license is enforced through software. The remaininglicenses are enforced through the EULA.3. When multiple Q-series vGPUs are assigned to a single VM, only one license for the VM isrequired, not one license for each vGPU assigned to the VM.4. For GPU pass through, Microsoft DDA, and VMware vDGA deployments for computeintensive virtual servers, one license per VM is enforced through software. This license isvalid for the assignment of one physical GPU to a VM. One additional license is requiredfor each additional physical GPU assigned to a VM. Any additional licenses are enforcedthrough the EULA.Virtual GPU Software Client LicensingDU-07757-001 v13.0 Revision 02 3

Introduction to NVIDIA vGPU Software Licensing1.2.1.Software Enforcement of NVIDIA vGPUSoftware LicensingWhen a Virtual Machine (VM) that is running NVIDIA vGPU software is first booted, the virtualGPU or physical GPU assigned to the VM operates at full capability. When licensing is enforcedthrough software, the performance of the virtual GPU or physical GPU is degraded over time ifthe VM fails to obtain a license.How the performance of an unlicensed vGPU or physical GPU is degraded depends on howmuch time has elapsed since the VM was booted and the NVIDIA vGPU software graphicsdriver was loaded.Elapsed TimePerformance Degradation20 minutes‣ Frame rate is capped at 15 frames per second.‣ The performance of applications and processes that use CUDA is degraded.24 hours‣ Frame rate is capped at 3 frames per second.‣ CUDA stops working and CUDA API function calls fail.‣ GPU resource allocations for a vGPU are limited, which will prevent someapplications from running correctly.A VM obtains a license over the network from an NVIDIA vGPU software license server. Thelicense is “checked out” or “borrowed” when the VM is booted, and returned when the VM isshut down.Note: Information on setting up and running the NVIDIA vGPU software license server isprovided in Virtual GPU License Server User Guide.For NVIDIA vGPU deployments, the NVIDIA vGPU software automatically selects the correcttype of license based on the vGPU type.Figure 1 illustrates how NVIDIA vGPU software licensing is enforced through software.Virtual GPU Software Client LicensingDU-07757-001 v13.0 Revision 02 4

Introduction to NVIDIA vGPU Software LicensingFigure 1.1.2.2.Software Enforcement of NVIDIA vGPU Software LicensingEULA-Only Enforcement of NVIDIA vGPUSoftware LicensingWhen licensing is enforced only through the EULA, no licenses are checked out from thelicense server. You must comply with the terms of the EULA by ensuring that all the licensesrequired for your NVIDIA vGPU software deployment have been purchased.The nvidia-smi -q command indicates that the product is licensed even when no license ischecked out from the license server.If licensing for all your NVIDIA vGPU software deployments is enforced only through the EULA,you do not need to set up and run the NVIDIA vGPU software license server.1.3.How this Guide Is OrganizedThe remainder of this guide is organized as follows:‣ Licensing an NVIDIA vGPU describes licensing of NVIDIA vGPU.‣ Licensing a Physical GPU describes licensing of vWS features for a physical GPU in passthrough mode or in a bare-metal deployment.‣ Advanced Topics discusses advanced licensing settings.‣ Troubleshooting provides guidance on troubleshooting.Virtual GPU Software Client LicensingDU-07757-001 v13.0 Revision 02 5

Introduction to NVIDIA vGPU Software Licensing1.4.Enabling License Management inNVIDIA X Server SettingsBy default, the Manage License option is not available in NVIDIA X Server Settings. Beforeusing NVIDIA X Server Settings to license NVIDIA vGPU software, you must enable this option.Note: Do not enable the Manage License option with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.8 and 6.9 orCentOS 6.8 and 6.9. To prevent a segmentation fault in DBus code from causing the nvidiagridd service from exiting, the GUI for licensing must be disabled with these OS versions.If you are licensing a physical GPU for vCS, you must use the configuration file /etc/nvidia/gridd.conf.This task requires sudo privileges.1. If NVIDIA X Server Settings is running, shut it down.2. If the /etc/nvidia/gridd.conf file does not already exist, create it by copying thesupplied template file /etc/nvidia/gridd.conf.template.3. As root, edit the /etc/nvidia/gridd.conf file to set the EnableUI option to TRUE.4. Start the nvidia-gridd service.# sudo service nvidia-gridd startWhen NVIDIA X Server Settings is restarted, the Manage License option is now available.Virtual GPU Software Client LicensingDU-07757-001 v13.0 Revision 02 6

Chapter 2.Licensing an NVIDIA vGPUNVIDIA vGPU is a licensed product. When booted on a supported GPU, a vGPU initiallyoperates at full capability but its performance is degraded over time if the VM fails to obtaina license. If the performance of a vGPU has been degraded, the full capability of the vGPUis restored when a license is acquired. For information about how the performance of anunlicensed vGPU is degraded, see Software Enforcement of NVIDIA vGPU Software Licensing.After you license NVIDIA vGPU, the VM that is set up to use NVIDIA vGPU is capable of runningthe full range of DirectX and OpenGL graphics applications.If licensing is configured, the virtual machine (VM) obtains a license from the license serverwhen a vGPU is booted on these GPUs. The VM retains the license until it is shut down. It thenreleases the license back to the license server. Licensing settings persist across reboots andneed only be modified if the license server address changes, or the VM is switched to runningGPU pass through.2.1.NVIDIA vGPU License RequirementsThe license edition that you require to use NVIDIA vGPU depends on the vGPU type.The vWS license edition includes the vPC license edition: virtual GPUs that require a vPClicense can also be used with a vWS license.Note: For more information on NVIDIA vGPU types, refer to Virtual GPU Software User Guide.2.2.Licensing an NVIDIA vGPU onWindowsPerform this task from the guest VM to which the vGPU is assigned.The NVIDIA Control Panel tool that you use to perform this task detects that a vGPU isassigned to the VM and, therefore, provides no options for selecting the license type. Afteryou license the vGPU, NVIDIA vGPU software automatically selects the correct type of licensebased on the vGPU type.1.

Chapter 3.Licensing a Physical GPUWhen its VM or physical host is first booted, a physical GPU running in pass-through modeor a bare-metal deployment operates at full capability. However, the performance of thephysical GPU is degraded over time if the VM or physical host fails to obtain a license. If theperformance of a GPU has been degraded, the full capability of the GPU is restored whena license is acquired. For information about how the performance of an unlicensed GPU isdegraded, see Software Enforcement of NVIDIA vGPU Software Licensing.The type of license required depends on how the physical GPU is deployed.‣ In GPU pass-through mode on Windows, or in a bare-metal deployment on Windows orLinux, a physical GPU requires a vWS license.‣ In GPU pass-through mode on Linux, a physical GPU requires a vWS license or a vCSlicense.You can also operate a physical GPU in pass-through mode or a bare-metal deployment atreduced capability with a vApps license. vPC is not available on GPUs running in pass-throughmode or bare-metal deployments.3.1.Display Resolutions for PhysicalGPUsThe display resolutions supported by a physical GPU depend on the NVIDIA GPU architectureand the NVIDIA vGPU software license that is applied to the GPU.vWS Physical GPU ResolutionsGPUs that are licensed with a vWS license support a maximum combined resolution based onthe number of available pixels, which is determined by the NVIDIA GPU architecture. You canchoose between using a small number of high resolution displays or a larger number of lowerresolution displays with these GPUs.The following table lists the maximum number of displays per GPU at each supported displayresolution for configurations in which all displays have the same resolution.Virtual GPU Software Client LicensingDU-07757-001 v13.0 Revision 02 11
