The latest NVIDIA JetPack bundles all of the developer tools required to develop for the Jetson platform, including system profiler, graphics debugger, and the CUDA Toolkit.

NVIDIA System Profiler

NVIDIA System Profiler is a multi-core CPU sampling profiler that provides an interactive view of captured profiling data, helping improve overall application performance.

Tegra Graphics Debugger

Tegra Graphics Debugger is a console-grade tool that allows you to debug and optimize your OpenGL and OpenGL ES applications, enabling you to get the latest, most advanced GPU features with the Jetson platform.

CUDA Toolkit

CUDA Toolkit provides a development environment for creating high-performance GPU-accelerated applications, and includes all th enecessary debugging and optimization tools.

Included in CUDA Toolkit:

NVIDIA Nsight Eclipse Edition

Develop your CUDA application within a powerful IDE designed to create the most homogeneous development environment for heterogeneous platforms. You can seamlessly debug CPU and CUDA code, profile your CUDA kernels and efficiently refactor your code to take advantage of the GPU.

NVIDIA Visual Profiler

The NVIDIA Visual Profiler is a cross-platform performance profiling tool that delivers developers vital feedback for optimizing CUDA C/C++ applications.


CUDA-MEMCHECK detects the source and cause of memory access errors in your GPU code and allows you to locate them quickly. CUDA-MEMCHECK also reports runtime execution errors, identifying situations that could otherwise result in an “unspecified launch failure” error when your application is running.


CUDA-GDB provides a console-based debugging interface you can use from the command line on your local system or any remote system on which you have Telnet or SSH access. CUDA-GDB delivers a seamless debugging experience that allows you to debug both the CPU and GPU portions of your application simultaneously.

CUDA nvprof

Profile your CUDA application with this command line profiling tool to quickly collect CUDA kernel performance data and hardware performance counters.
