You don't need to chide me for making what is, to me, a reasonable
solution. *You* may not be able to make hardware changes, but why the
people who can would want failing GPUs remaining in a system is anathema to
my approach to cluster management. In other words, I do not recommend you
try to find a workaround to a solution that, in my opinion, is best solved
by eliminating the faulty hardware. I understand the impulse, and if there
is a simple solution to specifying a specific GPU, then fine, do that. But
again it goes against treating such resources as generic - nodes and
hardware should be thought of as cattle, not pets, and should be managed
accordingly. Again, I believe you are trying to solve a problem that should
not be yours to solve. Sorry if this irritates you.
