Welcome to Nvidiagpubeat. Nvidiagpubeat is an elastic beat that uses NVIDIA System Management Interface (nvidia-smi) to monitor NVIDIA GPU devices and can ingest metrics into Elastic search cluster. nvidia-smi is a command line utility, based on top of the NVIDIA Management Library (NVML), intended to aid in the management and monitoring of NVIDIA GPU devices.

Nvidiagpu beat with help of nvidia-smi allows administrators to query GPU device state. It is targeted at the TeslaTM, GRIDTM, QuadroTM and Titan X product, though limited support is also available on other NVIDIA GPUs.

NVIDIA-smi ships with NVIDIA GPU display drivers on Linux, and with 64bit Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7.

Nvidiagpubeat provides ability (look at nvidiagpubeat.yml) to configure metrics that needs to be monitored and by default it queries utilization.gpu,utilization.memory,,,memory.used,temperature.gpu,pstate and can ingest them into elastic search cluster for possibly visualization using Kibana.

Ensure that this folder is at the following location: ${GOPATH}/

Getting Started with Nvidiagpubeat


sudo curl | sudo python
sudo pip install virtualenv
brew install glide

Init Project

To get running with Nvidiagpubeat and also install the dependencies, run the following command:

mkdir beats_dev

#Use an empty directory
export WORKSPACE=`pwd`/beats_dev
git clone ${GOPATH}/src/
mkdir $WORKSPACE/src/
cd $WORKSPACE/src/
git clone
cd nvidiagpubeat/

It will create a clean git history for each major step. Note that you can always rewrite the history if you wish before pushing your changes.

To push Nvidiagpubeat in the git repository, run the following commands:

git remote set-url origin
git push origin master

For further development, check out the beat developer guide.


Make changes (if any) and build the binary for Nvidiagpubeat run the command below. This will generate a binary in the same directory with the name nvidiagpubeat.



To run Nvidiagpubeat in test environment with debugging output enabled, run:

export PATH=$PATH:.
./nvidiagpubeat -c nvidiagpubeat.yml -e -d "*"

nvidiagpubeat.yml contains env set to "test". This will run localnvidiasmi utility instead of nvidia-smi. Switch env=production to use pre-installed nvidia-smi utility on a GPU machine.


To test Nvidiagpubeat, run the following command:

make testsuite


make unit-tests
make system-tests
make integration-tests
make coverage-report

The test coverage is reported in the folder ./build/coverage/


Each beat has a template for the mapping in elasticsearch and a documentation for the fields which is automatically generated based on etc/fields.yml. To generate etc/nvidiagpubeat.template.json and etc/nvidiagpubeat.asciidoc

make update


To clean Nvidiagpubeat source code, run the following commands:

make fmt
make simplify

To clean up the build directory and generated artifacts, run:

make clean


To clone Nvidiagpubeat from the git repository, run the following commands:

mkdir -p ${GOPATH}/
cd ${GOPATH}/
git clone

For further development, check out the beat developer guide.


The beat frameworks provides tools to crosscompile and package your beat for different platforms. This requires docker and vendoring as described above. To build packages of your beat, run the following command:

make package

This will fetch and create all images required for the build process. The hole process to finish can take several minutes.
