Want to monitor FPS and memory usage

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting to be able to get minimum and MAx FPS and max Vram usage. I have mis afterburner but I don't really know how to make it start and stop recording FPS and all monitorings when I want and then be able to check it later. It just records them as soon as the game comes on so the max FPS is kind of screwed up. Any help would be great.

I have sli 1.2gb 570s and have a 4gb 670 on the way. I'm wanting to be able to see if more Vram is better then raw power when running triple screens. I've see alot of info here on it, but no actuall benchmark test scores and alot of back and forth opinions. Right now I have several games that will crash if I run any decent settings and turn on AA. Without AA i can run them with pretty decent settings but as soon as even 2x AA is on the Vram shoots up and they crash. I'm thinking this is because of my low Vram. Once I get the 670 I will know for sure, but it would be nice to have some numbers to share with the community.

Afterburner has a logging feature (Settings > Monitoring > "Log history to file"). If you mouse over the checkbox a popup will tell you that logs are viewable in RivaTuner, so you could probably use that and be done. However, if you open the file in a text viewer, you'll see that it's in CSV (comma-separated values) format. You should be able to import this list into your spreadsheet program of choice.

LibreOffice didn't want to play nice at first, but renaming the log file to .csv (from .hml) gives you the correct text importing options. Select "comma" as your delimiter and you'll end up with something like this:



The first few rows are kinda screwed up (formatting for RivaTuner I assume) but the rest is usable. Here's a quick-and-dirty graph of my VRAM usage in Orcs Must Die 2:



You can probably do something similar with FPS but I haven't messed around with it. If all else fails, I know Fraps can log FPS to a text file, so you can do the same sort of thing with that.
