Hi All,

 I am very interested in the the GPU utilization of my app, so I try to capture it with "Process -> GPU general -> GPU % Utilization" and "System -> GPU general -> GPU % Utilization" . 

The screenshot of the observation is shared with following google drive link.


What confused me is that the reading "GPU % Utilization" from process and system are quite hard to understand.

First, why the process "GPU % Utilization" reading is like 27.49G and 17.75K (as shown in the pic)? What do numbers with G or K mean here? why is it not a percentage number like what shown in system  "GPU % Utilization" reading?

Second, why the system "GPU % Utilization" reading is always 100%?

BTW, I am using Nexus 6p with Android 7.1.1

Thanks in advance.

I have the same confusion as the author of the question. Is there somewhere an explanation of this metrics available? They seem to represent min and max values, but where to find the place where this time period can be change?
