NSight Profiling Crashes with error code (9)

I am trying to profile an application that asynchronously launches CUDA kernels on the GPU. But the profiling fails with the following error

==PROF== Profiling “potrf_alg2_set_info” - 1: 0%
==WARNING== Backing up device memory in system memory. Kernel replay might be slow. Consider using “–replay-mode application” to avoid memory save-and-restore.

Any suggestions as to what is happening?

Hello Joseph,
Thank you for your question on Nsight and I’m sorry you ran into this problem. I just want to clarify which Nsight product are you using. Are you using Nsight Graphics or a different Nsight product such as Nsight systems or Nsight Compute?
