I am wondering if there is any restriction/side effect if I debug and profile OpenCL program remotely.
Also if the graphics card is used to drive the display at the same time, is there any debug/profile side effect?
There should not be any problem in general.
I have myself done, profiling an application using sprofile (commandline AMD APP Profiler) remotely and then dumping the csv files.
Can you give more details about :
4.Profiling /debug tools,
5. How you connect remotly
1. Windows 7 64 bit
2. Raedon HD 7970 (only one graphics card, no integrated card)
3. 13-1 driver (showed in device manager as Dec 2012 driver)
4. CodeXL 1.1
5. connect through windows remote desktop
I don't know if there is any problem with connecting remotely though. I once tried remotely and the program stuck forever. If I do it locally it did not stuck. I can not reproduce the problem now. Just want to ask if there could be any problem.
AFAIK, RDP should not have any problem as far as compute samples run. But to run samples having graphical output, you probably need TeamViewer or VNC.
