Hi @FractalMath, sorry to hear that did not resolve the issue for you.
I was able to replicate the error, though I had to generate the report 3 times before running into it. I’m still not certain what the root cause is (though I will report it back to you when I know), though I do have a solution that will get you unstuck.
Following the advice of this forum post, we are able to turn off CPU sampling and only trace the CUDA APIs (which is what we are interested in for this material) by adding the
--sample=none --trace=cuda. Thus, a full profile command would look something like
nsys profile --stats=true --force-overwrite=true --sample=none --trace=cuda -o baseline-report ./baseline. I tried this out and it works, and, gives me everything I need within the Nsight Systems GUI.
I will look to resolve this issue more at the root when I’m able, and will also queue up edits to the content so that the use of
Makefile is enabled once again without error.
Please let me know if you have any issues going forward, and thanks again for reaching out.
