Smoke test hardware vs. normal run hardware


I would like to get a a sense of how much time does my inference take during the “normal” submission.
For this, I would like to ask if the hardware spec. (GPU, CPU, nr. of cores, load of the VM etc.) of a smoke test is the same as the hardware specs. for the “normal” submission?
If so, then the inference time for the 2 samples of the smoke test would be the same during the “normal” run.

Hi @zsolt.bedohazi! The hardware spec (CPU, GPU, number of cores) is the same between smoke submissions and normal submissions. The only difference is that in the smoke submissions, the test images are mounted with Azure blob storage. With normal submissions, the test images are on disk so read speeds are much faster. Hope that helps!
