What's the meaning of GPU load


I obtain the load of GPU by reading the file /sys/devices/platform/host1x/17000000.gp10b/load. It reports me an non-negative number, but I am not sure what really is this number for? For example, if its 123, what’s the meaning of this number?


Not 100% sure, but from my experiments, I would say this means GPU load is 12.3%.

That one should be the same as the gpu utilization in tegrastats.

I would like to resurrect this old thread… Running tegrastats and a script that reads /sys/devices/platform/host1x/17000000.gp10b/load side-by-side and their readings do not match. Would it be possible for NVidia to share the snippet of code used in tegrastats to calculate GPU load?


Ok, I have found a code snippet inside nvgstiva_perf.c, so will try to re-use it.
