I've recently turned process accounting on and noticed lots of "nvidia-settings" calls which don't turn up elsewhere, i.e. not in 'ps' or 'top' output. Apparently these are short runs done every couple of seconds or so, under my user. I have no clue why these are done though, nor which process initiates them. Any pointers for me?
Edit: Hrm sorry, I think it's resolved. Some GPU Temp monitor apparently issues those calls. Too stupid. Thx
