Better Hang Detection For The RADV Vulkan Driver
Written by Michael Larabel in Radeon on 12 September 2017 at 08:32 AM EDT. 12 Comments
Samuel Pitoiset of Valve's latest work on the open-source Radeon driver stack has been figuring out better GPU hang detection for the RADV Vulkan driver.

Samuel has modified RADV to be more verbose when generating the trace file when the GPU encounters a hang. With the 15 patches posted today, a lot more information is now dumped to more easily and better narrow down the source of the problem. An example of the revised dump reports here.

These patches for now can be found on Mesa-dev. This will hopefully help in tracking down the lingering issues around this open-source, community-driven Radeon Vulkan Linux driver.
