GPU performance counters

Android GPU Inspector (AGI) can sample GPU performance counters from Arm® Mali™, Imagination® PowerVR™, and Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPUs. You can use this data to identify bottlenecks in your app's GPU usage.

You can enable each supported counter when you configure system profiling in AGI, and then view the results in the GPU counters section of the System Profiler UI.

The names and descriptions of the supported counters for your Android device are listed in the GPU > Counters > Select option of the Capture System Profiler dialog. For information about configuring the Counters option, see Profile a system.

For additional details about any GPU performance counters, check the developer guides that are provided by your GPU manufacturer. The following guides include GPU counter information; however, the level of detail can vary based on how much the manufacturer chooses to publish:
