How to kill a App once GPU Usage is below set Threshold using a given GPU? per nvidia-smi in Windows

Would love to know how to integrate GPU Threshold once reached.

For example below 10% Usage for the Program/App to exit and if possible in a batch file, I've tried with a mix of CPU+memory threshold but that don't always work properly in all Apps, so I thought GPU threshold would solve this since it is pretty definite at times unlike CPU+memory thresholds which can vary greatly sometimes.

Here's a batch example for the threshold that needs a GPU threshold included, btw this does not work in its current state, its supposed to kill folding.exe once it reaches gpu usage below 20%, you can test this with any gpu bound app really  >

@echo OFF

@start "" "folding.exe"


:: set process_name:

 set process_name=folding.exe


cd /D "C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVSMI\"


for /f skip^=8^ tokens^=1-3^ delims^=^| %%a in ('"nvidia-smi.exe"') do (

    for /f "tokens=1-6 delims= " %%g in ("%%a") do set u=%%g & set v=%%h) & set w=%%j) & (

    for /f "tokens=1-3 delims= " %%g in ("%%b") do set x=%%g & set y=%%i) & (

    for /f "tokens=1-2 delims= " %%g in ("%%c") do set z=%%g) & goto :breakForLoop


set /a u+=0 & set /a v+=0 & set /a w+=0 & set /a x+=0 & set /a z+=0

set /a u=u & set /a v=v & set /a w=w & set /a x=x & set /a z=z

echo %u%, %v%, %w%, %x%, %y%, %z%


timeout /t 5

goto GPU

if %z% Lss 20 TaskKill /F /im %process_name% & goto RUNNING

timeout /t 3


tasklist|findstr %process_name% > nul &&

    taskkill /F /T /IM "Werfault.exe" & exit /b

timeout /t 1
