Hi everyone.

I have using IMX8MQ-EVK with imxlinux-4.14 sumo.

I'd like to check GPU Idle percentage, so I used gpuinof.sh.

But the result is always idle 0%, I do not think the result is correct.

Is the execution method of gpuinfo.sh wrong?

Or is there another way to know the idle percentage of the GPU?

The result of gpuinfo.sh is as follows.

root@imx8mqevk:~# /unit_tests/GPU/gpuinfo.sh

I read "i.MX_Graphics_User's_Guide.pdf", but the details were not written.

Actually the GPU automatically goes in power off mode when nothing is to do. So it does not run idle.

By the way you can get more details of GPU state with "cat /sys/kernel/debug/gc/idle" command.

Have a great day,
Victor

Hi Victor

Thank you for responding.

Understood. I executed it and the result is as follows.

root@imx8mqevk:~# cat /sys/kernel/debug/gc/idle
Start: 5757240251 ns
End: 7524459253552 ns
On: 2938778259485 ns
Off: 138181322440 ns
Idle: 0 ns
Suspend: 4441742431376 ns

Based on the above results, the GPU "On" time is 39% (2938778259485 / 7518702013301 = 0.39).

This is only 39% of On time, but it does not mean that you are using 39% of the Total GPU performance, right?
