Request to analyse GPU running 95% in GeForce 8400M GS on centOS 7.6

Dear Team,

Any one had faced the same issue with my laptop. There is alert message shown me : GPU is running 95% and temp : 74c. I’m running NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS (NVIDIA on CentOS 7.6.
Are there any solution which you can share me ?

Unless this is specific to imaging software under the Clara SDK you should consider posting here instead:

FYI, 74c is fairly low for most GPUs (though I don’t know about in a laptop mobile app). See:

I am guessing some other application was set up to monitor temperature and uses some default value which is rather low.

If running the NVIDIA driver under Linux (not the Nouveau driver), then you will have this application (and this application has a “Thermal Settings” for monitor):


Dear Linuxdev,

thanks for your recommend. I will open the topic in that link which you shared.
