Solved "Unified GPU Usage Monitoring" equivalent
#1
Hi,

Is there an equivalent to the "Unified GPU Usage Monitoring" option from MSI Afterburner in HWInfo ?
This option avoids the GPU Usage reading from jumping between 0% and 100% constantly.

Thanks,

That depends on type of workload (DX, computing) and GPU used. There should be various other usage counters available in sensors.

Thanks for the reply.
The GPU is a RX 580 and i'm monitoring my video games sessions. I don't see any other usage sensor for the GPU, at least, nothing in percentage.

Which Windows version do you have? Can you attach a screenshot of the GPU in sensors window?

I'm currently using Windows 10 on build 1809 (latest)
Here is a screenshot of my HWinfo64 sensors : https://imgur.com/a/6vIqqVB

It looks like there are several GPU usage counters missing. I will need the HWiNFO Debug File to analyze this.

Here is my debug file Smile
And again, thanks for your help and your time

Well, this is quite strange. For some unknown reason the GPU fails to return its performance counters.
Which version of Radeon drivers are you using? Can you try to upgrade to the latest version?

I'm using driver 18.9.2, it is the latest Smile

EDIT: I did a clean install of my drivers, nothing changed, tried both drivers (stable and latest beta)

It looks like this is an issue of Windows 10 build 1809. Don't know yet exactly what/why happened, but will try to determine that.
It's also possible that a further Windows 10 build might fix this...

Hi Martin,
earlier you have solved no 3d, computing , video decode-encode usage for me and  likely the problems back again, I am on 19H1 build 18247 btw.

Yes, that was an issue in HWiNFO, but this seems to be some internal change in Windows. Not sure yet what exactly is that, because those functions are not quite public.

I'll reply if the problem is fixed.
Before HWiNFO, I was using MSI Afterburner which had the same problem, but it could be countered by checking the "Unified GPU Usage Monitoring Equivalent".
For the moment, I'm using an "average" GPU Usage with 200ms polling rate and the last 20 samples. It does the job.

Is there a website or other thread where we can follow updates about the whole HWiNFO and Win10 1809 issue?

Current situation is that most recent NVIDIA drivers (R4xx) should have fixed this problem, but AMD didn't yet.

Alright thank you for the info, I just received an email from AMD about the new drivers supporting the latest Windows update so I will report back once I have downloaded those!

Good news, Radeon 18.10.1 fixed the issue too, I have all GPU readings back!

Indeed, I just tested this on my systems and can confirm it's fixed by 18.10.1 Smile
