To access this window: run Graphics Frame Analyzer from the Application folder; or right-click the Graphics Monitor icon in the taskbar notification area and select Graphics Frame Analyzer.

Use this window to open previously captured frame files and streams for profiling and debugging. You can preview all the frames and streams available on your host system:

Frame Capture Thumbnails pane

Select the frame capture you want to debug. This field lists all frame captures located in your Intel® GPA home directory ~/GPA. By default, all frame types are displayed. You can sort the frames by the API type (OpenGL or OpenGL ES), name or date with the corresponding buttons. If all the frame files on your system are of the same type, these toggle buttons are hidden.

The currently selected frame capture is highlighted with blue borders and appears in the frame preview pane.

To delete captured frames, hover the mouse pointer over a frame thumbnail and click the Close button in the top right-hand corner of the thumbnail. Confirm your choice by clicking Yes on the thumbnail.

You can pin favorite frames to the top of the list.

Frame Preview pane

Preview the selected frame capture. This field shows the buffer image and the following frame capture properties:

  • filename
  • API used
  • frame resolution
  • name of the device on which the frame was captured
  • GPU details

To rename the selected frame capture, you can click its filename and enter a new value.

Click Open, to open the selected frame in the Profiling View. To open the storage directory of the selected frame, click the button.

Choose Target System button

  • Select the target system or GPU against which to test the captured frame by clicking this button and selecting the required system or GPU from the list. By default, Graphics Frame Analyzer uses your local host system (This PC).
  • Add a remote Ubuntu* target system to the list by clicking this button and entering the IP address of the target system in the field on the bottom of the list. Optionally you can set an alias for the remote system. For details, see Connecting a Remote Ubuntu* Target System.
