I am new to Nsight Systems and GPU profiling in general.
I am having trouble to connect to a machine on Google Cloud within Nsight Systems, I can’t get past the device validation phase. I can see through `ps aux’ that things are happening on the target during this phase (so the ssh connection must have been established), but Nsight Systems gets stuck on “launching the tools app on the device”. I have not been able to find what this means, but I am getting the following detailed message:
NVIDIA Nsight Systems 2018.3.1.29-2abcab9 OSX - <username>@<ip_address>: [Error] Failed to launch daemon Failed to launch daemon executable on target device. Please kill all running instances of quadd_d manually or reboot the target device.
Here are the details of the image I selected from Google Cloud:
Google Deep Learning VM
Based on: Debian GNU/Linux 9.6 (stretch) (GNU/Linux 4.9.0-8-amd64 x86_64\n)
Does anybody know what the problem could be? Thanks!
