Description

Gives hardware information on most Nvidia GPUs. (Clocking)

Connector ID: NvidiaSmi

Target

Typical platform: Any system with Nvidia GPUs

Operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Linux

Prerequisites

Leverages: NVIDIA drivers with NVIDIA-SMI support.

Technology and protocols: System Commands

Examples

CLI

hws HOSTNAME -t win -f NvidiaSmi --wmi -u USER

hws-config.yaml

hosts:
- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: win
  selectedConnectors: [ NvidiaSmi ] # Optional, to load only this connector
  wmi:
    username: <USERNAME> # Change with actual credentials
    password: <PASSWORD> # Encrypted using hws-encrypt

Connector Activation Criteria

The Nvidia-Smi connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all the below criteria are met:

  • The command below succeeds on the monitored host
    • Command: nvidia-smi
    • Output contains: Driver Version (regex)
