Memory bandwidth and utilization page definitions


Does anyone have a link to descriptions of all metrics used in the Memory Bandwidth and Utilization analysis page for nvvp? I have been unable to find this in the nvvp user documentation.

In particular, I’m interested in why L1 reads/writes are listed under the L2 cache, but a full documentation would be helpful.


Hi, Ania_b

There is a way to find out which metrics are related.

  1. Use nvvp to generate a timeline first, and check “GPU Details”.
  2. Execute “Kernel Memory” Analysis, and check “GPU Details”, then related metrics will be listed and have reasonable value. You can hover the mouse to check the meaning of each metric.

Perfect, thanks!
