I want to use nv-nsight-cu-cli to profile programs, but I can’t find it on device.
So is nv-nsight-cu-cli available on DRIVE AGX ORIN?

Dear @WanchaoYao,
Can you use remote profiling from host using nsight? Do you see any issue?

@SivaRamaKrishnaNV Thanks for ur reply!
Well, I have no experience on remote profiling.
So, fisrt, I want to double check that you have already verified remote profiling, right?
Second, could u plz share me some tutorials on remote profiling?

Dear @WanchaoYao,
Could you check the topic How do I get Nsight Systems for NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Orin DevKit? and User Guide :: Nsight Systems Documentation if it helps

@SivaRamaKrishnaNV They are all about nsys. I can run nsys on Orin, but I need Nsight Compute now.

Dear @WanchaoYao,
May I know why you are specific to use Nsight compute. Please see if User Guide :: Nsight Systems Documentation helps to profile GPU

@SivaRamaKrishnaNV I have already read the user guide for nsys. But I think nsys is not enough. Since Nsight Systems and Nsight Compute split system-level application analysis and individual CUDA kernel-level profiling into separate tools.
Take some reasons I need Night Compute for example:

  1. want to know the usage rate of SMs
  2. want to get cache miss rate
  3. deep analysis of a kernel, not the overall profile of the whole program

Dear @WanchaoYao,
Got it. The tool is not available on target. Did you try remote profiling using nsight compute from host? Please check Nsight Compute :: Nsight Compute Documentation if it helps?
