No visual profiler (nvvp) in cuda-10 installation folder - Ubuntu 16.04

I just realize that the installation folder of cuda 10 on my Ubuntu box does not contain nvvp, like previous versions. cuda version is 10.0.130. what is the package that I can find nvvp for cuda 10?


Based on your other recent question here, you seem to use methods for install that are unfamiliar to me.

I think if you used NVIDIA installers, and followed NVIDIA-recommended methods to install CUDA 10.0.130, you would find nvvp right where it is supposed to be.

Assuming you are using a PC and based on the repositories from Nvidia, the visual profiler should be in the package cuda-nvvp-10.0. I would advise to install cuda-10.0 metapackage, which installs more than you might use but you won’t have the problem of some missing dependency.

You can follow the instructions provided by Nvidia on some of their pages and donwload the main installer form “”.

Additionally you can find detailed steps at “”/

Basically, you will be adding Nvidia’s repository for cuda packages ( and then installing them as usual.

Also you might need to install openjdk-8-jdk as said on

Then you can do “/usr/local/cuda-10.0/bin/nvvp -vm /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java” or “/usr/local/cuda-10.0/bin/nsight -vm /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java”
