Difference sm__cycles_elapsed and smsp__cycles_elapsed?

Hello! I have a dumb question :), but I’m a little confused.
I don’t understand clearly the difference between this metrics, and how to the cycles counters related to the HW architecture.

My current understanding (AI100):

  1. Device → SMs->4 sub partitions{An individual: warp scheduler, …, Execution units}.
  2. SM and each sub partition have individual cycle counters.
    This is right?

I recommend asking questions like this on the Nsight Compute forum.
