Failing to profile the AGX Xavier with nvidia nsight graphics using the host

Hi all,

I am trying to profile an application launched on the target Jetson AGX Xavier with NVIDIA Nsight Graphics from the host, but the tool is failing to profile the target, so i have the following output :

That’s the configuration :


TensorRT Version : 7.7.3
GPU Type : Volta 512 CUDA Cores 64 TensorCores
Nvidia Driver Version :
CUDA Version : 10.2
CUDNN Version : 8.0
Operating System + Version : Ubuntu 18.04 L4T 32
Python Version (if applicable) :
TensorFlow Version (if applicable) :
PyTorch Version (if applicable) :

How can i avoid this issue and can i profile with nsight graphics directly from the target ?
