When using the CUDA visual profiler what extension (if any) must be on the executables that you are seeking to profile? I know in Windows the extension should be *.exe. In Linux what should the extension be?
I wish to profile some of the example programs included in the NVIDIA 64 bit CUDA installlation.
I type cudaprof and cudaprof opens up.
I select File->New
because my project is new.
I then try to browse and select the CUDA program (from the example files) that I want to profile. But none are shown. As I said earlier in MS Windows the files would be identified with *.exe extension. But what about Linux; the executable files are identified by the green print out of their name.
However, in my case nothing is shown, so I can load nothing.
Again, I am using the 64 bit NVIDIA with Linux 64 bit operatng system. Can the profiler handle 64 bit files?
I just want to load a Linux executable and profile it. As I said when I come to that step nothing is shown. I can only assume that it must be looking for an extension. In a Linux compilation the generic executable is a.out, is it lookng for extenesion .out?
