Performance Monitoring Tool Alternatives

Does anyone know of any alternative tools that can be used on Devcloud for OneAPI?

The specific tools I need alternatives for are:

IOStat / Monitor IO of specific process
intel-gpu-tools / Performance metrics on GPUs
perf / General performance metrics

iftop / Network monitoring for a specific process


These require the use of sudo in order to install and as that is understandibly unfeasible for devcloud to install without affecting other users (https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-DevCloud/perf-interface/m-p/1186028 ) I need alternatives.

The performance metrics will be gathered in intervals during an applications run. I do not believe VTune to be sufficient for this use case for several reasons:

1). I have not found a setting in the documentation that allows for setting it to run in intervals

2). If I were to set a time limit for how long VTune is to run in a loop for the approximate interval length I am limited to a minimum of 1 second and Vtune also takes far too long as it write the results to file before displaying them.

If there was a way to get VTune to only display the output immediately after running similar to Perf then it may be feasible to use with a creative solution to the interval problem.

I have found psutil from pip but this does not give indepth performance metrics.

Any ideas would be fantastic and greatly appreciated, all the programs I have tried require the use of sudo to install or sudo to run.

Thanks

Hi,

 

Thank you for posting in Intel Communities.

As for the package installation, sorry for the inconvenience, users neither have admin privileges in DevCloud nor sudo access. Intel DevCloud® is a shared environment which comes with pre-installed validated Intel® oneAPI software and complimentary packages. As a policy we do not install custom (open source or 3rd party licensed) software to the environment and recommend that you explore available and equivalent oneAPI Software tools or components. You may be able to install software locally in your user folder using < > “pip install –user” (dash dash user switch allows you to install local in your home directory).

Hi,

To answer the next part of the question, for getting performance metrics, we don’t have solutions other than Vtune profiler which can give indepth performance metrics. We suggest you explore the top command in linux, which might suit your requirement.
