uprof PowerProfiler Installation Failed on Ubuntu 18.04

Hi,

I'm trying to install μProf 3.1-35 on Ubuntu 18.04. While the existence of AMDPowerProfiler module is confirmed with lsmod,

xxx@xxx:/opt/AMDuProf_3.1-35/bin# lsmod | grep AMD
AMDPowerProfiler       65536  0
xxx@xxx:/opt/AMDuProf_3.1-35/bin# modinfo AMDPowerProfiler
filename:       /lib/modules/4.15.0-62-generic/updates/dkms/AMDPowerProfiler.ko

srcversion:     44490FED67E43CF2D42BC70
depends:       
retpoline:      Y

vermagic:       4.15.0-62-generic SMP mod_unload
signat:         PKCS#7

the Power Profiler failed to start.

xxx@xxx:/opt/AMDuProf_3.1-35/bin# AMDuProfCLI timechart --list
/opt/AMDuProf_3.1-35/bin/AMDuProfCLI
ERROR: Power profile driver not installed.
Please install the driver and try again.

I'm wondering how to deal with the situation.

 

Thanks!

Some updates.

Trying to call AMDPowerProfileAPI, and AMDTPwrProfileInitialize returns AMDT_ERROR_PLATFORM_NOT_SUPPORTED: Platform not supported. The CPU in use is 3800x.

Hi microneko,

Thanks for using uProf and apologies for the delay in response.


Can you please provide us the output of following commands to debug this issue further.
1. sudo cat /proc/AMDPowerProfiler/device
2. ls -lrt /dev/AMDPowerProfiler
