Can't get GPU Metrics with nsight-system

when I run the program:

python3 --dataset citeseer --dim 3703 --hidden 16 --classes 6 --num_layers 2 --model gcn

it can work flawlessly, below is the result:

however, when I use nsight-system to profile the program, the command like :

sudo /usr/local/cuda/nsight-system/bin/nsys profile --stats=true --gpu-metrics-device=0 --gpu-metrics-frequency=10000 python3 --dataset citeseer --dim 3703 --hidden 16 --classes 6 --num_layers 2 --model gcn

the programe also run well, but I can’t get the GPU Metrics in the generated report, here:

and the report generated with some error, the detail:

NVIDIA Nsight Systems version 2022.5.1.82-32078057v0
RTX 2080 Ti(11GB) * 1

so how can I solve the problem to get the right GPU Metrics like tensor core activity?

What driver do you have?

Can you send me the results from running “nsys status -e” at the command line?

@pkovalenko , can you please chime in on this?

It looks like this is being run from a docker container, right? The page referenced in the diagnostic message ( describes the right steps to fix the issue. Specifically, --cap-add=SYS_ADMIN has to be added to docker run arguments.

HI did u solve this problem, i met the same problem when using autodl gpu machine

maybe there’s some problem with the autodl, after we turned to A100, such problem doesn’t appear again.
