Internal error reserving space for ranges (with Nsight Graphics 2019.2.1.0 x64 OpenGL 4.5 on GTX 108...

Hello NVidia development community,

I am using NVIDIA Nsight Graphics with

Version: 2019.2.1.0 (Build 26129631) (public-release)

which works fine, except that the profiling information cannot be collected, showing the message

“Internal error reserving space for ranges, can be caused by profiling being disabled in the driver”

How can I enable that in my driver / fix that?

I am running Archlinux

Linux 5.0.7-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Apr 8 10:37:08 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

with the nvidia driver


having installed

extra/nvidia 418.56-7
extra/nvidia-settings 418.56-1
extra/nvidia-utils 418.56-1
extra/opencl-nvidia 418.56-1
multilib/lib32-nvidia-utils 418.56-1

and I use that for an application on

GL_VENDOR : NVIDIA Corporation
GL_VERSION : 4.5.0 NVIDIA 418.56


(sorry for posting in the wrong forum, I have opened that here again)

It’s a change in the driver, from changelog:
* Updated the driver to restrict use of the GPU performance counters to
system administrators by default. The previous more permissive behavior
can be restored by setting NVreg_RestrictProfilingToAdminUsers=0 when
loading nvidia.ko.

That did work: all the profiling information is showing up now.

Thank you!
