Announcing radeontop, a tool for viewing the GPU usage
While the performance counters are still undocumented, at least some monitoring is possible.
Announcing radeontop v0.5.1. An userspace tool for the open Radeon drivers, supporting R600 and up.
Comments, bug reports, translations welcome. Package it for your distro if you like
I'll be setting up launchpad translations if this proves popular.
Coolcoolcool! I've been waiting for something like this!
Minor nitpick, on my system make didn't generate version.h, I had to run getver.sh manually:
radeontop.h:22:21: fatal error: version.h: No such file or directory
I also see that my vertex cache reports 100% usage all the time, not sure what's up with that.
Just a wild guess, but IIRC some of the low end parts didn't have a vertex cache and so vertex fetches went through the texture cache.

I had problems with getvers.sh btw... for some reason version.h wasn't created, had to do it manually.
//edit: running works as well

Thanks for the feedback, I've pushed 0.5.2 which should fix the build issue w/ version.h.
As for the vertex cache, it seems the bit changed meaning starting with Evergreen, ie you can only see the vertex cache usage on r600 and r700. I'll fix that soon.
Removed the VC display, seems it was only valid for r600 if even that. The TC may be wrong too, but hey, working off contradicting docs here
Your issue and other problems with the Makefile (with suggested fix) have been reported already on github https://github.com/clbr/radeontop/pull/2
Switching obj and LDFLAGS in the Makefile did the trick.
Senk ju ferrie matsch.
Great to see there is already a fix in the pipeline.
