I captured system and GPU info via Streamline 8.3 (Build 8.3.0.v20221116_1421) on ubuntu 20.04 successfully,
while i cannot analysis the output with "apc" suffix via Performance Advisor 8.3 (Build 8.3.0.v20221116_1421).

is there something wrong with these tools call, or any solution to solve this problem
Thank you for getting in touch.
Did you follow the steps outlined in the Performance Advisor quick start guide? The link is here https://developer.arm.com/documentation/102009/0803/Quick-start-guide?lang=en
Performance Advisor requires additional frame information to generate a report. This extra information is added by using the lwi_me.py script to generate an "apc" capture.

Thanks a lot. I notice it after reading the instruction again.
Instead of building an android app package and running lwi_me.py, I compiled a single GPU test program by aarch64-linux-android-gcc and tested it manually through "gatord --allow-command".
In this situation, I will get an error like "ERROR: No debuggable packages found" if I run lwi_me.py, because the program to be tested is not a real Android package.
So is there a way for TCP users to use Performance Advisor
Thanks Arthur, understood.Are you able to modify the source of the GPU test program? You can manually add frame information using our annotation library, the full details are described here developer.arm.com/.../Send-annotations-from-your-application-code and here developer.arm.com/.../Include-Streamline-annotations-in-native-applications. If you send an annotation from your program at the beginning of each frame, then Performance Advisor can pick those up to perform analysis.Please let me know how you get on and if you have any more questions.
It worked! Thanks a lot!!
