    Small typo here, it's GALLIUM_HUD.

      So in theory I could use this to monitor a possible VRAM leak in long-running OpenCL processes (bfgminer) which eventually crash out... Just need to run glxgears or something with the HUD along-side... Or just write a program to query the kernel through libdrm, which sounds like work..

        Yeah, you can query it from any program and you should be able to see memory leaks easily.

          Does having the Gallium3D HUD enabled have an effect on in-game performance? In my limited testing it seemed to have an impact, but I have no way empirically testing that.

            There is only the cost of drawing the HUD, which consists of transparent rectangles and lines. It depends on the app. You probably won't see a difference in Unigine Heaven, but you will see it in glxgears.

              Does the HUD work with Mumble overlay at the same time? Does it work on all 3D applications (eg. Blender), or are there exceptions?
