2 GPU's Only one Being Used

I was just looking around while rendering and noticed out of the two GPU's I have installed only one is being used during LWSN rendering. As you can see both are being setup correctly on initialization from the octane_node.cfg file.

Thoughts?

Hi,

Are you sure that you have the Windows task manager configured to plot the GPUs computing performance? This tool is not the best one to check the GPUs CUDA computing performance, and in any case, you must select one of the "compute_x" graph modes.

Thanks,

Ah yes If I choose Compute_0 it's pegged nearly 100%...that's what I like to see :)

Based on render times I was thinking this was an anomaly...but wanted to double check my settings. Thanks for confirming things!
