[SOLVED] When will NVIDIA fix `nvidia-smi -a` ?
You can surely export these things to regular (non Tesla) users, 'cause there are no trade secrets to be exposed by showing this information.

They deliberately removed support for non quadro gpus, older drivers (can't remember the version) worked. Probably for marketing reason, that's the drawback of non FOSS drivers, we've to deal with it.

Half of this information can be seen using [code]nvidia-settings -q all[/code] so I guess it's a case of negligence rather than a deliberate attempt not to expose it.

As i wrote, that info used to work till a specific driver release. Many users wrote about it, and never nvidia fixed it, nor gave us an internal bug id. Feel free to wait for an answer :D

A bit impatient there, birdie? I found the bug - it's actually inside NVML. I have a bug report and workaround [url=https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/560248/system-management-and-monitoring-nvml-/bug-nvml-incorrectly-detects-certain-gpus-as-unsupported-/]here[/url] but as nvidia-smi is closed-source, I can't apply the bugfix to nvidia-smi without some GDB trickery. :( If all you want to see is GPU utilization and power usage, well, the code I have there will do just that, provided you have recent drivers. :)

Just improved my bugfix - newer version [url=https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/563056/linux/how-to-get-nvidia-smi-working-/]here[/url] gets the mainline nvidia-smi working again.
