PVRMonitor is an Android application that allows a user to view real-time hardware performance stats, giving information about processor usage on the CPU and PowerVR graphics hardware with negligible impact on performance. The data is presented as a bar graph, updated in real-time and overlaid on top of currently running applications.

PVRMonitor gives immediate feedback on an application’s performance, without having to connect to an external client such as PVRTune. Stats shown by the application include:

  • CPU Load
  • Total Pixel Load
  • Total Vertex Load
  • ALU: Pixel Load
  • ALU: Vertex Load

Key Features

  • Immediate feedback on application’s performance. Are you CPU, vertex processing or fragment processing bound?
  • Negligible performance impact. Does not use any GPU or driver resources
  • Built on top of PVRScope
