Linux Graphics Debugger 2.1 is available for download under the NVIDIA GameWorks Registered Developer Program. This maintenance release adds support for the Fedora 25 OS and fixes a number of bugs.
This 3D graphics development tool allows developers to debug and profile OpenGL 4.x on Linux. It enables professional graphics developers to get the most out of their NVIDIA GeForce and Quadro GPUs on a variety of Linux distributions, and inherits from the many man-years of investment in OpenGL development tools from the Tegra Graphics Debugger and NVIDIA® Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition.
The NVIDIA® Linux Graphic Debugger has been updated with these new version 2 features:
2.1 Features and Improvements:
- Support for Fedora 25 (x64 only)
- Deadlock when debugging multithreaded rendering applications
- Crash when UE4 applications exit
- Bug when “Null fragment test” when program pipeline is used
- Issues with “Linked Programs View”
- Frame debugging and profiling can be done on the latest Pascal family of GPUs (Requires a Linux driver version above 370.00)
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
