Arm Mali GPUs implement a comprehensive range of performance counters that enable you to closely monitor GPU activity as your application runs. Arm Streamline visualizes performance counter activity in a series of charts, to help you identify the cause of heavy rendering loads or workload inefficiencies that cause poor GPU performance.
Understanding the workload breakdown, pipeline loading, and execution characteristics of your application can help you decide where to apply rendering optimizations. The following guides describe all the performance counters available for each Mali GPU, with some advice about how to interpret the value.
Note: The performance counter variable names described in these guides are for Arm Streamline version 7.2.
