👨💻 Advanced Usage#
You can install jtop in a virtual environment or in a docker following the guidelines below
If you need to install in a virtual environment like virtualenv, you must install before in your host and after in your environment, like:
virtualenv venv source venv/bin/activate pip install -U jetson-stats
jtop is a complete controller of all systems in your NVIDIA Jetson
Status board (i.g. Model version, Jetpack, … )
from jtop import jtop
You can initialize the jtop node like a file i.g.
with jtop() as jetson: # jetson.ok() will provide the proper update frequency while jetson.ok(): # Read tegra stats print(jetson.stats)
Or manually start up with the basic function open/close
jetson = jtop() jetson.start() stat = jetson.stats jetson.close()
You can read the status of your NVIDIA Jetson via callback
def read_stats(jetson): print(jetson.stats) # Open the jtop jetson = jtop() # Attach a function where you can read the status of your jetson jetson.attach(read_stats) jetson.loop_for_ever()
