Users will now have access to many new data sources including MPI, Linux ftrace, Windows ETW and DirectML. The GUI timeline events can now be viewed as a data table. CUDA memory transfers have a new color scheme, letting users identify their type and direction at a glance. The CLI has new options for waiting, terminating processes, and capture range triggers. Additionally, users can now producing multiple reports with a single application run. This is done through the CLI with the interactive command subset: launch, start, and stop.

Nsight Systems is part of a larger family of Nsight tools. A developer can start with Nsight Systems to see the big picture and avoid picking less efficient optimizations based on assumptions and false-positive indicators.
