No running processes found on Ubuntu 20.10


I’ve just (I think properly) installed latest Nvidia driver:

the nvidia-smi gives me this result:

| NVIDIA-SMI 460.39 Driver Version: 460.39 CUDA Version: 11.2 |
| GPU Name Persistence-M| Bus-Id Disp.A | Volatile Uncorr. ECC |
| Fan Temp Perf Pwr:Usage/Cap| Memory-Usage | GPU-Util Compute M. |
| | | MIG M. |

| 50% 41C P0 N/A / N/A | 149MiB / 979MiB | N/A Default |
| | | N/A |

| Processes: |
| GPU GI CI PID Type Process name GPU Memory |
| ID ID Usage |
| No running processes found |

I need it working mostly to pass it to the 3D accel feature on Virtualbox VMs. Actually, if I enable the 3D accel in a VM, I have some strange graphic behaviours in the VM guest desktop (Win10) .

Hereinafter I’ve attached the nvidia-bug-report.log.gz

Please help.

Actually, that “No running processes found” is displayed is just a bug in current nvidia-smi. Low-end gpus like your gt710 don’t support process accounting. So the correct output should be “Not supported” as it was with earlier nvidia drivers/nvidia-smi. Just ignore this, according to the logs you provided, the nvidia driver is running fine.
The 3D accel feature in VBox is known to be buggy, can’t help you with that, please refer to the VBox forums if there’s some way to mitigate this.

Hi Generix,

thank you for your reply, it’s way more clear now.
