NVIDIA Graphics Card: Memory utilization

Distribution Official part of Checkmk
License GPLv2
Supported Agents Windows
This checks monitors the memory utilization of an NVIDIA graphics card using the command line tool nvidia-smi. The check only works if that tool is installed.

The total memory utilization is calculated by adding up FB and BAR1 memory utilization. FB memory is the on-board frame buffer memory. BAR1 memory is used to map the FB memory so it can be directly accessed by the CPU or by 3rd party devices. Both of these values are also individually monitored.

You can configure upper levels for all three types of memory utilization (Total, FB, BAR1).


PCI bus ID of the graphics card


One service is created for each available graphics card if the necessary values to calculate gpu utilization are available.
