    Phoronix: Intel Linux Driver Support Revived Again For Interesting Per-Process Usage Reporting

    Back in October 2018 came the initial patches for providing per-process GPU usage reporting to be exposed to user-space for interesting metrics akin to the top command or other system monitoring utilities but for detailed GPU statistics. In October that interesting work finally saw a revision but went dark after that and didn't make it into the recent Linux 5.5 merge window. Now a new spin of that code has been sent out for review...

    From the article:

    ...include[s] the ability to track GPU time for clients that exit the GPU with work left running...
    Well, that's just rude!

    I bet those same clients are the type to use the /tmp space and not clean up after themselves when they are done; or hardcode their settings file to ~/app_name.ini; or focus their X11 without being prompted to do so by their user.

    Programs simply have no manners these days!
