Configure The Production Environment

The section discusses how to configure the host system for Savant modules execution. Savant modules and adapters are run in the docker environment. This document describes how to configure the dockerized runtime.

General Information

Jetson Nano 1st Gen: Savant does not support 1st-gen Jetson Nano due to the outdated software stack supported by the device.

Savant runs on top of DeepStream ecosystem, therefore, it requires DeepStream dependencies to be satisfied:

  • Docker with Compose, Nvidia GPU drivers R525 (data center hardware), 530+ professional and desktop hardware;

  • Docker with Compose, Jetpack 5.1.2 GA on Jetson AGX Xavier/ NX, Orin Family.

You can look for detailed environment setup instructions in the Nvidia Quickstart Guide.

The recommended spare space in a filesystem where docker images are stored is 15 GB.

Nvidia Jetson

An Nvidia Jetson device is ready to run Savant after setup.

Ubuntu 22.04

At the current moment, we provide the instruction on how to configure Ubuntu 22.04 runtime. If you use another operation system, adapt the instructions to your OS.

Update Packages and Install Basic Tools

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y git git-lfs curl -y

Install Docker

curl -fsSL -o
sudo sh

Install Nvidia Drivers

sudo apt install --no-install-recommends nvidia-driver-530
sudo reboot

Install Nvidia Container Toolkit

distribution=$(. /etc/os-release;echo $ID$VERSION_ID)
curl -s -L | sudo apt-key add -
curl -s -L$distribution/nvidia-docker.list | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nvidia-docker.list

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y nvidia-container-toolkit
sudo systemctl restart docker

Test The Runtime Works Properly

sudo docker run --rm --gpus all nvidia/cuda:12.1.1-base-ubuntu22.04 nvidia-smi
