Screen: Options

To access the Options screen, click the button on the Graphics Monitor Launcher Screen.

The Options screen comprises the following tabs:

  • Metrics: choose metrics to be displayed in the System Analyzer HUD in the target application, customize the System Analyzer HUD position, and configure metrics collection.

  • Shortcuts: view and change the default keyboard shortcuts.

  • Trace: enable tracing and set trace collection settings.

  • Frame: set frame delimiters.

Metrics

Use the Metrics tab, to do the following:

  • Enable/disable system-wide time-based GPU metrics collection
  • Enable/disable GPU metrics collection by the target application
  • Enable/disable Null Hardware override support
  • Customize the System Analyzer HUD position
  • Configure the HUD metrics

Metrics tab comprises two lists:

  • List of all available HUD metrics.

  • List of active HUD metrics.

To configure the HUD metrics to be shown in the target application, drag and drop a metric from the list of available metrics to the list of active metrics. The maximum number of active HUD metrics is four. To restore the default list of active HUD metrics, click the button. To change the metrics that are displayed, you can remove a metric from the Active HUD Metrics list by dragging and dropping this metric back to the list of available HUD metrics, or reorder the Active HUD Metrics list by dragging and dropping a desired metric over another active metric.

Use the search bar at the top of the tab to find relevant metrics.

Shortcuts

To change a shortcut, click the shortcut value, and then click the buttons combination that you want to use as a new shortcut: start with a combination of modifier keys (ALT, CTRL, SHIFT, etcs.) and end with an alpha-numeric character key.

To restore default shortcut values, click the button.

Use the search field at the top of the tab to find relevant shortcuts.

Trace

In the Tracing tab you can enable tracing and modify tracing options :

  • Enable capturing a trace upon an application startup.
  • Change the duration of the application run to be captured in a single trace file. By default, the trace duration is five seconds.

To restore the default tracing parameters, click the button.

Use the search field at the top of the tab to find relevant domains.

      Frame

      Use the Frame tab to set frame delimiters for OpenGL applications. Frame delimiter is an API call acting as a frame border. Set frame delimiters to enable Intel® GPA analysis for applications that do not use default frame delimiters.
