I’m interested in collecting information on L1 cache accesses and misses on my Maxwell card. However, I noticed that nvprof does not list any metrics or events related to the L1 cache, and according to the documentation there is indeed no more L1 cache-related metrics for compute capability 5.x.
I’m wondering if there’s any way to indirectly retrieve these metrics indirectly, or whether these metrics will be exposed some time in the near future.
My idea is to simply use subtraction to retrieve the number of L1 cache misses:
# L1 misses = (# of L2 accesses) - (# of L2 accesses from texture cache)
However, this approach probably isn’t 100% accurate.
I’m most interested in retrieving the L1 cache global hit rate.
