Get the current memory usage, in bytes, for the chosen device. (deprecated)

This function is deprecated in favor of tf.config.experimental.get_memory_info. Calling this function is equivalent to calling tf.config.experimental.get_memory_info()['current'].

See for specifying device strings.

For example:

gpu_devices = tf.config.list_physical_devices('GPU')
if gpu_devices:

Does not work for CPU.

For GPUs, TensorFlow will allocate all the memory by default, unless changed with tf.config.experimental.set_memory_growth. This function only returns the memory that TensorFlow is actually using, not the memory that TensorFlow has allocated on the GPU.
