Tesla GPU info monitoring tool
« on: October 30, 2021, 07:38:43 PM »
We have a Xeon server with 2 Tesla M2070 GPUs, running Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64) and Wowza Media Server using HW CUDA cores for the transcoding process. We are willing to upgrade our server and provide more transcoded HD video streams, but we are somehow unsure how much impact will additional processing take. I have already (unsuccessfully) tried to use the GPU-Z tool to check sensors reading. Is there ANY monitoring tool for the Windows platform to monitor GPU “performance”, i.e. GPU Load, Memory Used, and GPU Clocks? Somebody on the forum mentioned using “Nvidia-smi.exe”, but I was not able to find this tool and I also tried many other “GPU monitoring” tools, but NONE have worked… :confused:
Any tip will be highly appreciated!
Best regards

Stefan

Here you go:
c:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\nv*.inf_amd64_*\nvidia-smi.exe
The path is dependent on the installed driver.

The author of GPU-Z is aware of Tesla issues:
