NVIDIA announces Nsight Systems 2019.5

NVIDIA Nsight Systems 2019.5 is now available for download. This release aims to refine the user experience with CLI sessions for simultaneous usage of more commands, improved GUI timeline zooming levels of detail, enhanced Vulkan API coloring, and Linux GPU context switch trace. 

Nsight Systems is a system-wide performance analysis tool, designed to help developers tune and scale software across CPUs and GPUs. Find out more at: https://developer.nvidia.com/nsight-systems 

GPU context switch trace for Linux

See how multiple API contexts share GPUs and when a GPU workload may be interrupted due to context switching
Improved timeline zoom levels of detail

For APIs like Vulkan, subtle background color changes help users see events but maintain their low height to represent how small they are sub-pixel

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.
