Connecting a Remote Ubuntu* Target System

With the Graphics Frame Analyzer, you can test your OpenGL* frames against a remote Ubuntu* target system.
To connect a remote Ubuntu* system for analysis:
  1. Run
    gpa_player
    on your remote Ubuntu* target system. By default,
    gpa_player
    is located in the
    /opt/intel/gpa/
    directory.
    IMPOrtant
    For security reasons,
    gpa_player
    only accepts connections from whitelisted host systems. To enable the connection, do one of the following:
    • Specify your host system IP address in the
      GPA_IP_WHITELIST
      environment variable.
      GPA_IP_WHITELIST
      can contain multiple IP addresses, in a comma-separated format.
    • Provide the host system IP address using the
      -i
      or
      --white-ip
      command-line options when launching the
      gpa_player.
  2. Run the Graphics Frame Analyzer on your host system.
  3. In the
    Open Frame Capture
    window, click the button and enter the IP address of the remote target system. If you specified a custom port number with the
    –p/--port
    option when launching the 
    gpa_player
    , add this port number after the IP address, separated by a colon. Optionally, you can also set an alias for the remote system:
  4. Click the button to save the remote player configuration.
  5. Connect to the remote system by selecting it from the list of players in the Toolbar.
    If the connection is successful, the
    Open Frame Capture
    window displays the list of frames compatible with the connected target system. Otherwise, you can see a corresponding error message.
To disconnect the remote system, simply select another system from the list. If you need to re-connect, remember to re-run the 
gpa_player
on the remote target.
To remove the remote system from the Toolbar, hover the mouse pointer over the system thumbnail and click the
Close
button that appears in the top right-hand corner of the thumbnail. Confirm your choice by clicking
Yes
on the thumbnail.
