Description Shmerl 2019-02-22 18:24:15 UTC
Framerate can be very useful for benchmarks.
Comment 1 Shmerl 2019-02-22 18:26:38 UTC
Also, frametimes meter seems to be always on without any option to control it. May be it should be behind an option as well.
Comment 2 oschowa 2019-02-24 00:02:28 UTC
fps is implemented with: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/merge_requests/303
Comment 3 Shmerl 2019-02-24 02:09:21 UTC

Is there some way to also add graphs similar to GALLIUM_HUD, or it needs more features to implement first?
Comment 4 Shmerl 2019-02-24 02:44:27 UTC
Also, it would be good to be able to control what to display with a parameter, same as it's done for submit, draw and etc. rather than display anything unconditionally.
Comment 5 oschowa 2019-02-24 12:07:58 UTC
Adding more graphs should be relatively straight forward but someone would need to implement querying the relevant information first, preferably in a cross-platform manner. I might give adding a cpu-usage graph a go next week.

Personally I don't see much value in reducing the information displayed by default.

Anyways, this bug should be either renamed or closed.
