Profiling records have been dropped and will not be displayed in the timeline

Hi!

When I am profiling my application ,after some time I am getting the following popup

The start and end timestamps on 702130 kernels,memcpys,and other collected profile data are invalid.
Those profiling records have been dropped and will not be displayed in the timeline.

and on the terminal from where nvvp launched its started showing

Exception in thread “Analysis Completion Waiter” org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Failed to execute runnable (java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded
Caused by: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded

Can any one please tell me solution why its happening.

Thanks

Which version of the CUDA Toolkit are you using? Which OS and GPU are you using?

Refer the “Improve Loading of Large Profiles” section in the Profiler User’s Guide http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/profiler-users-guide/index.html#large-data

Or to limit profiling to a region of your application you can use the cudaProfilerStart() and cudaProfilerStop() APIs. Refer the “Focused Profiling” section in the Profiler User’s Guide http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/profiler-users-guide/index.html#focusing-profiling
