I used the following command, without any metric, to profile an application with Nsight
/usr/local/cuda-10.1/NsightCompute-2019.1/nv-nsight-cu-cli -f -o profile.nsight …/…/…/build/bin/bfs market mygraph.mtx
I have profiled the same input with nvprof and the output file is small and the runtime is quick. However, I see that Nsight still profiles after 1 hour and the output file is about 2GB!
Is that normal? I don’t think so…
