Hi …

I’m tring to use Nsight Systems 2018.3.1 in Window 10.

But when i try to connect via Ethernet then i got this message.

NotFoundError (127) {
OriginalExceptionClass: class boost::exception_detail::clone_impl
OriginalFile: c:\buildagent\work\20a3cfcd1c25021d\quadd\host\analysis\basedevice.cpp
OriginalLine: 589
OriginalFunction: class boost::filesystem::path __cdecl QuadDAnalysis::BaseDevice::GetSpecialFilepath(const class boost::filesystem::path &)
ErrorText: Installing special file failed.

I fallowed process through this link.

PermitRootLogin yes
sudo firewall-cmd --list-ports
sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --addport 45555/tcp

But I still cannot connect with Tx2 Board

what should I do ?

How can I connect with my Tx2 Board ?


The Nsight Systems 2018.3.1 package is for profiling on x86 targets. To profile on Tegra targets you will need the Tegra version. You can download that package as part of JetPack - https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/jetpack

Let us know if that does not fix the issue.

Since you are trying to connect to the Tx2 board, you need to use Tegra version of the tool (as Holly suggested). When using the Tegra version, could you enable the verbose logging and share the log file?

To enable the logging, please rename nvlog.config.template file (in Host-x86_64 directory) and restart the tool. After you get the error message, close the tool. The nsight-sys.log file should appear in current directory (Host-x86_64). Please share this log file.

I tried to use Nsight in Linux PC and connection to Tx2 via ethernet.

And finally it works. I don’t know how to use Nsight System in Window OS.
Anyway it works :)

Thanks !!

Sorry for the difficulties, but glad you got it to work for you
