Description leozinho29_eu 2018-07-20 16:45:50 UTC
The program intel-gpu-tools from git is crashing on startup. When starting intel-gpu-tools using the -f option, the following messages are shown: 

intel-gpu-overlay: gpu-perf.c:340: request_add: Assertion `class <= I915_ENGINE_CLASS_VIDEO_ENHANCE' failed.

intel-gpu-tools version 1.18 opens, but shows the GPU usage as "idle", while version 1.22 opens and shows, in the part where it should show GPU usage, "i915.ko tracepoints not available".

Comment 1 Chris Wilson 2018-07-20 17:01:46 UTC
It intentionally doesn't adapt to different versions of the tracepoints, I suspect you need v4.19 currently (and v4.19 won't be for another 3 months...)
Comment 2 Petri Latvala 2019-02-25 09:55:04 UTC
Does this still happen with a recent kernel?
Comment 3 leozinho29_eu 2019-02-25 13:50:59 UTC
Using latest kernels (5.0-rc) and latest intel-gpu-overlay it works correctly. It is only failing when older kernels, as 4.18.0-15, are used.
