To run the plugin sample from the Unigine SDK Browser, go to Samples -> UnigineScript -> App and run the gpu_monitor_0 sample.

GPU Information

The following information is available for GPU:

Graphics Core clock, i.e. frequency, at which the GPU is running.
Memory Memory clock, i.e. how fast the GPU memory is running.
Processor Shader clock, i.e. how fast the shaders operate.
Temperature GPU temperature.

The table below demonstrates which information is shown for different GPUs:

GPU Graphics Memory Processor Temperature
NVIDIA
AMD
Intel not supported not supported not supported not supported
Notice
On devices running Mac OS X, only Temperature is displayed.

Launching GPUMonitor

To use the plugin, check the GPU Monitor setting in Unigine SDK Browser on project creation and then specify the extern_plugin command line option on the start-up:

Shell commands
main_x86d -extern_plugin "GPUMonitor"
Notice
For an existing project, go to Other Actions -> Configure Project -> Video Ouput Options, check GPU Monitor and click Update Configuration.

To hide or show the GPUMonitor plugin information while running the application, use theshow_gpu console command: pass 1 to show the information, 0 to hide it.
