Ubuntu – How to measure GPU usage


Using the top command in the terminal lists processes, sorted by their CPU usage (and you can change it to sort by another parameter)

Is there an equivalent for the GPU?

Best Answer

  • For Nvidia GPUs there is a tool nvidia-smi that can show memory usage, GPU utilization and temperature of GPU.
  • For Intel GPU's you can use the intel-gpu-tools.
  • AMD has two options

    1. fglrx (closed source drivers):

      aticonfig --odgc --odgt
    2. And for mesa (open source drivers), you can use RadeonTop Install via the software center.
