type of target system you are connecting to?
Linux machine running Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS
Do you use the Profile activity, or the Interactive Profile activity?
I have tried both and I get the same issue with each of them.
Does the remote file selection dialog work for you?
No. When I click on the little box with 3 dots on it to browse the remote file system a box appears telling me “Connection failed!”. The box asks me for my User Name and Password. When I enter these and click OK then Nsight Compute hangs.
In terms of what I can do now to profile applications running on a remote machine, the following works for me:
- Use the Connect to process GUI to set arguments for Profile Activity.
- Copy-Paste the text in the Command Line box into a Terminal window that is logged into the remote machine.
- Run NVIDIA Nsight Compute CLI (ncu) on the remote machine and write the output to a network drive that is mounted on my local machine.
- Open the output file in Nsight Compute on my local machine for analysis of the profiling results.
I would still like to be able to use the GUI version of Nsight Compute. For example, in the past I have found graphical debuggers very useful (e.g. in Visual Studio code).
