  • Improved the deployment performance during remote launches
  • Trying to profile on an unsupported GPU now shows an "Unsupported GPU" error message
  • Added support for the %i sequential number placeholder to generate unique report file names
  • Added support for smsp__sass_* metrics on Volta and newer GPUs
  • The launch__occupancy_limit_shared_mem now reports the device block limit if no shared memory is used by the kernel

NVIDIA Nsight Compute

  • The Profile activity shows the command line used to launch nv-nsight-cu-cli
  • The heatmap on the Source page now shows the represented metric in its tooltip
  • The Memory Workload Analysis Chart on the Details page now supports baselines
  • When applying rules, a message displaying the number of new rule results is shown in the status bar
  • The Visual Profiler Transition Guide was added to the documentation
  • Connection dialog activity options were added to the documentation

NVIDIA Nsight Compute Command Line Interface

  • Fixed an issue that reported the wrong executable name in the Session page when attaching
  • Fixed issues that chart labels were shown elided on the Details page
  • Fixed an issue that caused the cache hitrates to be shown incorrectly when baselines were added
  • Fixed an illegal memory access when collecting sass__*_histogram metrics for applications using PyTorch on Pascal GPUs
  • Fixed an issue when attempting to collect all smsp__* metrics on Volta and newer GPUs
  • Fixed an issue when profiling multi-context applications
  • Fixed that profiling start/stop settings from the connection dialog weren't properly passed to the interactive profile activity
  • Fixed that certain smsp__warp_cycles_per_issue_stall* metrics returned negative values on Pascal GPUs
  • Fixed that metric names were truncated in the --page details non-CSV command line output
  • Fixed that the target application could crash if a connection port was used by another application with higher privileges
