Hi Adolfo!

We are working in a tool related to performance analysis called Gputop.
It is not "Intel Gputop" which is an old project that has quite a few limitations.

Depending on what you are trying to achieve Gputop could be a better tool at this moment, although it requires more setup.

You can find the project here at Robert's Bragg repository:

You can have a look and explore the interface here:

And the setup for the tool can be found on this wiki:

For any questions or support you can email Robert Bragg or me.

I would like to have more information about the Intel_GPU_TOP tool

I have not been able to find much information, but I did found that it is part of the intel-gpu-tools.
The system  is using Skylake H i7-6700TE

I have the following questions

1)      Is there a glossary of terms used by the Intel_GPU_TOP tool?

2)      The  GAM is near 100%. According to this link: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E53394_01/html/E54763/intel-gpu-top-1.html      "Some  GPUs  report  some units as busy when they aren't, such that even    when idle and not hung, it will show up as 100% busy." Is this still true or has this bug been corrected?

3)      Is the Intel_GPU_TOP tool still in use or it has been replaced by other tool?

Best Regards,
Adolfo Sanchez
