Nsight Systems: Installing special file failed


I’m running DRIVE Software 10 on our NVIDIA Drive AGX Pegasus. I would like to do remote profiling. To do this, I tried to use Nsight Systems by running the /usr/local/cuda-10.2/NsightSystems-2019.2/Host-x86_64/nsight-sys executable installed by Nvidia SDK Manager on the host computer. But Nsight can’t connect to Pegasus. Whenever I try to connect, the following error occur:

NotFoundError (127) {
    OriginalExceptionClass: N5boost16exception_detail10clone_implIN11QuadDCommon17NotFoundExceptionEEE
    OriginalFile: /build/agent/work/20a3cfcd1c25021d/QuadD/Host/Analysis/BaseDevice.cpp
    OriginalLine: 591
    OriginalFunction: boost::filesystem::path QuadDAnalysis::BaseDevice::GetSpecialFilepath(const boost::filesystem::path&)
    ErrorText: Installing special file failed.

Is there any solution to it?

Best regards,

Hi Andrey,

The version of Nsight Systems, that supports NVIDIA Drive AGX target, is installed under /opt/nvidia/nsightsystems/nsightsystems-2019.3.4. The version, installed under /usr/local/cuda, supports the desktop target only.

Best regards,
