A few lucky folks at E2EVC, a couple of weeks ago in Las Vegas, got a sneak preview of a couple of new community tools for analyzing application usage of NVIDIA GPUS. I have already blogged about Jeremy Main’s GPU Profiler (read about it – here).
The other tool is one from community GPU and virtualisation expert Magnar Johnsen from Norway, who is well-known in the Virtualisation communities for his GPU-enabled deployments and tools. Magnar was in fact one of the community users who we invited to NVIDIA to speak to our engineers and product managers about the future direction of our products and user needs.
Magnar has released this tantalizing screen shot of his new tool and is actively inviting beta testers and GPU users to try it out and input into its development. You can sign up for the beta program here: http://virtualexperience.us13.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=efedd1e2c3378132102c90273&id=3875dd956b
One particularly interesting feature is the tools ability to monitor if applications are using APIs to use the GPU for DirectX (DX9, DX10, DX11) and OpenGL, OpenCl, CUDA etc.
Magnar Johnsen is a EUC solution specialist, blogger, speaker, and community tool developer with +15 years experience in End User Computing. Magnar works as a consultant in Bergen in Norway. He has worked with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware products since 1999 and with NVIDIA products since 2012. Magnar has a passion for technology, computer visualization and virtual reality.
