"This platform is not debuggable" error with Android* tablets


I'm trying to connect GPA to a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition).

Model - SM-P605

Chip - Snapdragon 800, Krait 400(CPU), Adreno330(GPU).

I get the following message 'Cannot run application. This platform is not debuggable. Contact the Intel GPA support team.'.

I've successfully managed to connect to other variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Multiple Swapchains


I am curious about what GPA considers as a Frame in a DirectX application. When you record a frame for analysis, what event is considered to be the start and the end of the frame. I am guessing GPA records the events between the next two Presents. If this is the case how does it deal with applications with multiple swapchains? I checked the forum for an answer on the subject, but I couldn't find any.

GPA System Analyzer for Android can't analyze apps on NVidia SHIELD


I was trying to run Intel GPA System Analyzer to get a frame of my game running on Android, and it was having a problem running the application. I am able to connect, but when I try to run the application I want to profile, it puts an an error at the top saying "Application Error: Failed to connect to the application. Contact the Intel GPA support team."


Thank you!

Raw data from gpa_trace files


Is there a way to extract the raw data (say in plain txt format) from the gpa_trace files generated by the system analyzer? My requirement is that I would like to process the raw data through my own scripts/programs. I am aware of platform analyzer, but the issue I see there is that it is designed more for visual analysis.

Media metrics all 0 with Windows 8.1

Hi, We have a board with I7-4770R so it has 5200 GPU. Running Windows 8.1 64bit with driver and GPA 14.R2. The problem we got is as we run the System Analyzer, there’s no reading for EU Engine Usage or GPU overall Usage, I mean the green line always stay at the bottom 0%. But with other 4600 GPU processors we can get at least 20% for GPU Usage. I read the release note, it says the latest GPA can support 5200 GPU, can you confirm this for me again? Thanks. Regards, Xiaole

Crash when Capturing Frame


applications that are started through Intel GPA Monitor (2014 R2) seem to crash when capturing a frame when it has a draw call that writes to a unordered access view (UAV) of a structured buffer (DirectX 11). Draw calls that only read from these buffers seem to not crash. Tested by capturing a Frame from the exact same scene without the Pass that renders to the structured buffer.

Frame Analyzer error when opening file created with Samsung Galaxy tablet

I got an error when I opened a captured frame with Frame Analyzer.

The error is "Open returned an error: FILE_OPEN_FAILED" when Frame Analyzer shown its status as "Starting Player on Device". 

The frame is captured from android device samsung galaxy note GT-N8013 and android version is 4.1.2. Frame those captured from PC DX11 works well.

GPA Moniter "About" Information attached below and I attached the frame file also.
