    Phoronix: Intel Posts Latest Linux Patches For Reporting Per-Client GPU/Media Engine Utilization

    For two years now Intel open-source engineers have floated patches for reporting per-client engine utilization for showing on an application level how much it's leveraging the Intel graphics render/3D, blitter, and video/multimedia engines. This can be used for some nifty system information reporting like a GPU top or other system monitoring functionality. The latest version of these patches were sent out this week...

    This sounds super useful for easier profiling of multi-process applications like browsers and display servers / Wayland compositors / WMs. Looking forward to it.

              I must be blind as I don't see it. But in any case there is some thing called radeontop that gives some info about what your graphics card is doing but doesn't break it down per application or process. If you are doing a render for example and want to know who gassed first your graphics card or your CPU running radeontop and top will give you a pretty good idea.

                I'm not sure how you missed it, since it's prominently right there in the thread. But here's the direct link to Alex's first message - https://lists.freedesktop.org/archiv...ay/266083.html The responses to that discuss it more in depth.

                  Nice. I like that feature, I didn't know AMD has it hidden somewhere too. I will definitively see and use that next time.
