Insights to the GPU on the edge


nVidia Jetson family devices have powerful gpu chips however they lack the industry standard tools for tracking gpu utilization and temperatures. We find those tools essential when optimizing the performance of our software on a given hardware.


Software Supreme designed a lightweight gui application that uses nVidia’s APIs to gather gpu data and display it in an easily understandable way.


While experimenting with hash decoding algorithms the tool proved very helpful to track gpu utilization. Good utilization translates directly into better processing times. We added network capabilities to the GPU monitor which allowed us to monitor multiple devices’ critical performance stats from a remote machine. The tool works on Windows and Linux machines running x64 or aarch64 and has been extremely useful for us on many occasions.
