[OFFICIAL] HWiNFO/32/64 Thread - Page 127

post #1261 of 1693
Hey Martin,

The recent posts made me reset my HWiNFO64 to monitor my GPU, a bit, JUST out of curiosity, because besides its temperature and the PCIe Link Speed, I never monitor anything else on my GPU. My GPU is show in my sig_rig.

So, I took the following screenshot (on idle):




I see two values: Allocated Memory and Memory Usage (%). What does Memory Usage show? Does it show the percentage of the Allocated memory used, or does it show the percentage of the total available RAM of my GPU, that is used?

Never before bothered to monitor these values, always hide them, so pardon me if I made a naive question.

Thank you! thumb.gif

So am I correct in thinking only AMD / nVidia internal depts would know how relevant the data we view in monitoring tools for end users is in context of actual VRAM used? (caveat being a) they have tools b) do testing as such).

Yes, I guess so. Only they have real insight. And that's true for lots of other information.

It shows the percentage of allocated GPU memory (allocated / total).

Thought so, thank you Martin, +REP! thumb.gif

Personally, I am fully aware of this, and I'm grabbing the opportunity to underline something:

- Whenever HWiNFO64 is presenting an erratic / arbitrary value or it cannot monitor a value it is 99.99% the manufacturer's fault! It is INTEL, AMD, NVIDIA and the various motherboard manufacturers those who should be blamed for not providing accurate information and reliable access to it!

Unless you live inside a Laboratory, HWiNFO64 is (by far) the best monitoring tool, available!

Just my personal opinion.

Thank you.

Thank you smile.gif
There's a lot of data that can be monitored which could provide useful information, but most of this is kept secret and known only to particular design teams. And often the information that we can monitor is not properly described by manufacturers or not reliable.

I was reading this (author's site).

So are you able to implement EvictAllocation Events counter?

I concur thumb.gif , I have never seen such an approachable and dedicated author of freeware. I would urge members that have never donated $ and use the program on a regular basis to support the author via donations on his site.

HWiNFO uses the same NvAPI_GPU_GetMemoryInfo function as mentioned there to report memory load information.
The other possible methods via DxgKrnl are DirectX-dependant and won't cover other interfaces like Vulkan, CUDA, etc.

@Mumak, thanks for the latest version, 5.34.2930, works great but... why are the Package C2 & C3, and Core# C7 states missing? A screenshot of how it was can be seen on this post of mine.

Also, now when I go to download the tool, it downloads automatically. I am not taken on the page to select the version any more.

EDIT: sorry about this, redface.gif , I was on Optimized Defaults due to the clean installation of Windows 10 and there, not all C States are enabled. As soon as I loaded one of my OC profiles, all of them appeared in the tool again!

Thank you! smile.gifthumb.gif
