New with NVIDIA® Linux Graphics Debugger 2.0

Features and Improvements:

  • Frame debugging and profiling can be done on the latest Pascal family of GPUs (Requires Linux display driver version 370.23 or newer)
  • The Range Profiler is a powerful new view for determining how your application utilizes the GPU
    • All new performance library for improved GPU instrumentation as well as collection speed and accuracy
    • Improved data mining allowing the user to construct ranges from sections of the scene based on predefined or user-defined criteria
    • Elapsed GPU time is reported for each range, as well as hardware statistics detailing how efficiently the GPU was used
  • Added new Disable Depth Test and Disable Cull Face performance tests
  • Better support for GL_ARB_draw_indirect, GL_ARB_multi_draw_indirect, and other extensions
  • Improved Resources View UI, including side by side selection and resource inspection
  • Improved the Geometry View with powerful visualization capabilities and automated detection of vertex buffer data errors
  • Added Issues column to the Events View to point out potential bugs and performance issues, correlated to the event stream
  • Frame Debugger now has a Capture Next Frame feature to help track down intermittent issues
  • Users can now retry capture if unsupported OpenGL operations are encountered

Known Issues:

  • If you are using multiple OpenGL contexts for rendering, the real time signal graph data may not be accurate
  • If you are using OpenGL features before 4.0 and try to capture a frame, you will be prompted if you want to continue, but LGD could exhibit unexpected behavior or instability
