Mutiple GPUs on single node


I have reviewed the MapD docs on distributed configuration (

But what if I have a single node with multiple GPUs? Does MapD core discover and use all GPUs automatically? Or do I need to deploy this as a cluster? In that case, would I have a separate entry in the Cluster.conf file for each GPU?

Thanks for developing and open sourcing this fabulous resource!




Thanks for try out MapD

We allow any number of GPUs to run within one node.

So in your case you need no special config to use all your gpu’s

MapD will automatically detect all the gpu’s and use them



Hello. Can I use multiple GPUs on one node in community version? or should I get another version?



Yes, you can run multiple GPU’s in one node on Community Edition.
