how to do GPU performance monitor in Xavier (Solved)

cannot find nvidia-msi command, cannot find tegrastats command

Hi,

Do you mean nvidia-smi?
nvidia-smi can only be used on the desktop environment.

For Jetson, please use tegrastats instead:

sudo ./tegrastats

Thanks.

Hi AastaLLL,
I enter “sudo ./tegrastats” command as you mentioned on Xavier. But I get the result as below. Do I need to install any other library to execute the command?
sudo: ./tegrastats: command not found

Thank you

Has this problem been solved?

I try the solution

https://github.com/FindHao/tx-utils

and could use the command(sudo python3 tegrastats2.py --bin=/home/nvidia/tegrastats --output=./a.log --params “–interval 500”) to get the information as below.

But can not get visualization charts by the below command
python3 visualize.py --start=“2018-06-09 02:42:30” --end=“2018-06-09 02:43:15” --input="/home/find/ddown/a.log" --output=./freq.xls

Run tegrastats on Jetson Xavier like you would a normal linux command:

$ tegrastats

Command line options include:

–interval [milliseconds]
–verbose
–stop [other instances of tegrastats]
–logfile

The “./” should not be part of that command (unless your working directory is the /usr/bin directory)

jwatte@jetson-nano:~$ which tegrastats
/usr/bin/tegrastats
jwatte@jetson-nano:~$ tegrastats

(This happened to be on a nano, but it’s the same on my Xavier)

Isn’t there any tool that delivers the information from tegrastats in the form of graphs?

I can read any one line of output from tegrastats, yet, from a screen full of constantly changing characters I can not get any idea for my GPU and CPU usage. Clearly, a tool like “System Monitor” is infinitely more useful. Unfortunately, it reports only the CPU usage and nothing about the GPU.

It would be really helpful is there is one, else can someone please explain some of the information displayed here:

What do these mean?
