I have a windows machine that I installed Nvidia Nsight for GPU trace and profiling, etc.
And I want it to connect to a Linux box executing a process that I want to remotely monitor GPU trace, etc.
According to User Guide :: Nsight Graphics Documentation, it looks like I need to install Nsight Graphics on the Linux box to run Nsight Remote Monitor so that I can connect from my windows. (or is this only for windows?) Anyway, I had it installed on the Linux box and tried to spin up Nsight Remote Monitor. But there was no the executable.
Also, this link User Guide :: Nsight Graphics Documentation JUST says “Remote debugging on Linux is supported through SSH connections. Enter your SSH information when establishing the connection to connect to the target machine.”, which I think is quite confusing.
When I clicked on the + button on the right of the “Connection” field, a message box shown below appeared.
The Linux box I’m using has a firewall setting so I have a specific range of ports that are allowed to public. What port does this tool use internally (if it’s fixed)? And what options do I have if that port is not within my allowed range? I can use SSH tunneling if needed though.
