Does this support profiling localhost on host system?

I tried connecting to It seems to connect after entering the correct password, but there’s a Communication error immediately afterwards.

Looking at More info shows this:

Hi @sleff,

x86_64 isn’t listed in “Supported Platforms” section in System Requirements.
Please try with other version. Thanks.

@VickNV so you are saying that this version of Nsight Systems does not support x86_64, even though the path to the executable contains x86_64, is that really true?:


There is another nsight executable under this path:


This one has the option of a direct Localhost connection in addition to SSH.

However, when I configure it to profile target application /usr/local/driveworks-2.2/bin/sample_autodrivingbeam, it does not start the application.

It is used for remote profiling.

Please make sure you can directly run the application without the error first.

Application runs directly with no error

This error looks not related to nsight-sys but window initialization error.


Use this executable instead:


To fix GLFW error, make sure DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly.
