Tegra Graphics Debugger is a console-grade tool that allows developers to debug and profile OpenGL ES 2.0-3.2, OpenGL 4.3-4.6, enabling developers to get the most out of the Jetson platform. Tegra Graphics Debugger is built from the ground up with a common UI with NVIDIA® Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition.

Tegra Graphics Debugger allows you to quickly connect to a Jetson device powered by Jetson TX2, Jetson TX1, or Tegra K1, and attach to your graphics mobile application to monitor key software and hardware performance metrics, such as "frames per second" to gauge rendering performance and "GPU utilization" to ensure you're taking full advantage of the hardware. Simple, yet effective, directed tests provide a painless method for identifying application bottlenecks.
Tegra Graphics Debugger
The Frame Debugger grabs a rendered frame from your mobile application for further analysis and debugging. Powerful tools, such as the Scrubber view and the Events list allow you to navigate the massive amounts of data generated by your application. Other views, such as the Resources viewer, allow you to explore your application, examining the various assets, while the API Inspector provides a view into the internals of your application.
The Range Profiler view uses hardware performance monitors to measure unit utilization and bottlenecks, reporting the performance limiters for the rendered frame. The high level overview shows where compute cycles are spent and how much memory traffic is happening where. This gives you a basic idea of how efficient your application is. Additional tools provide more granular details, such as the state bucket, which groups similar rendering commands allowing for optimizations that provide the maximum bang for your buck.
With Tegra Graphics Debugger, you can edit and recompile graphics shader source code on the fly, allowing you to experiment with modifications to your shader source for both performance and debugging. These modifications can easily be toggled or updated to compare rendering or performance results in conjunction with directed tests.
Tegra Graphics Debugger's powerful workflows enable game and graphics developers to get the most out of the Jetson platform. This tool for modern graphics development fits easily into your development environment. Redefine next-gen with NVIDIA Developer Tools.
