GPUProfiler v1.05

@JeremyMain JeremyMain released this Sep 5, 2017 · 1 commit to master since this release

The latest release of GPUProfiler v1.05 is finally available.

New Features

  • Dark UI theme (light theme can be enabled in options) #50

  • Automated timed series profiling via command line options #55

Flag Type Max Value Description
-i int 60 Sample interval
-d int 3660 Profile duration (in minutes)
-r int 500 Repeat (number of times)
-f string Output path/filename.
-t Append time stamp
-m Minimize during profiling
-x Exit on completion

Example usage:
GPUProfiler.exe -i 1 -d 30 -r 10 -f c:\tmp\profile.gpd -t -m -x

  • Run in TaskTray option added #56 | #58

  • Retain user defaults in the registry and load on startup #37 | #38 | #50 | #54

    • Default interval, duration, plot bold level as well as the application standard and dash-view window sizes /positions are also saved.
  • Remoting Agent version detection (Citrix / VMware) #25 | #26 | #31

  • GPU WDDM or TCC mode detection #43

  • Display total visible time in X-axis for assisting you visual and logical orientation within the plot.

New Monitoring Capabilities

  • Per-Process GPU utilization monitoring (currently not serialized in the GPD file, no graph support -yet)
    • Maxwell/Pascal generation GPUs for Virtual Machines and workstations (Kepler physical machine support is untested)
    • This requires NVIDIA driver version 385.41 or later


  • Improved DPI scaling support, 100%, 125%, 200% #40
  • Default profile view displays the first 60 samples and scrolls from then on #57
  • Improved display performance for longer profile runs.
  • Two step bolding of the individual plot lines, (third step is to hide it) hotkey ‘g’ for GPU, etc. #22
  • Three step bolding of the plot lines (hotkey ‘b’) #41
  • Legend display toggle (hotkey 'l') #42
  • Dash-view automatically hides legend and Axis labels #42
  • Resource utilization histogram update when visible data range changes
  • Arrow keys translate within the plot view
  • Ctrl+up (zoom in), Ctrl+down (zoom out)
  • 4 state 'Home' and 'End' functions
    1. Zoom all
    2. Show first / last 50% of total
    3. Show first / last 25% of total
    4. Show first / last 13% of total.
  • 'Page Up' / 'Page Down' translate along the X-Axis

There are other small changes from v1.04 that I have made, and as with all new releases, there are corner cases that I have not completely tested and would appreciate any discovered bugs to be added to the Issues page.
New feature requests can be added and tracked there as well.

GPUProfiler v1.04

@JeremyMain JeremyMain released this Jan 11, 2017 · 1 commit to master since this release

I have completed implementing and testing all of the new enhancements to the 1.04 release of GPUProfiler.
gpuprofiler 1 04

A short list of changes from v1.03 -> 1.04

  • In-graph display of utilization data in percentage or actual value for loaded files and for post collection results
  • Scroll, pan and zoom support via mouse wheel.
  • Re-sizable windows, size retained for each mode (normal/dashboard)
  • Dashboard mode via double clicking on the graph (revert to prior view via same method)


  • Resource histogram analysis analyzes the current visible time range (zoom in to examine a particular operation’s resource utilization)
  • Improvement in histogram calculation and handling of 100% and 0% values.
  • Histogram width increased to give better visibility
  • Selective display of histogram data based on current data display options
  • Double clicking each histogram toggles between auto-scale and fixed scale mode
    -- Fixed scale
    -- Automatic scale
  • Keyboard accelerators to show/hide the graph data in the plot, data tooltip and the histogram:
    -- 'C' - CPU
    -- 'R' - RAM
    -- 'G' - GPU
    -- 'F' - Framebuffer
    -- 'E' - Video Encoder
    -- 'D' - Video Decoder
  • The Analysis (histogram) can be shown or hidden with
    -- 'A' - Analysis
  • When data is loaded these hotkey control the display of utilization information when the mouse is within the graph results:
    -- 'U' - Utilization
    -- 'V' - Values (and utilization where appropriate)
  • Dependencies have been statically linked to remove the prior requirement to install Visual Studio redistributables
  • ‘GPD’ file associations are set on startup based on current executable path, GPD file icon added as well.
  • Zoom full to profile overview when profile collection has been completed
  • Removed checks that prevented the application from running in environments without NVML or an NVIDIA GPU
  • Improved scrolling/panning during profiling when in a zoomed view state
  • Multi GPU collection and support in the GPD data file but no current display in the UI
  • Added a disclaimer for my employer (thank you Rachel) in the about box
  • Font improvements to handle large DPI display users
