SDK Manager Settings
The SDK Manager Settings menu allows you to configure several different SDK Manager options. To do so:
Launch SDK Manager.
Click on the three dots in the top right corner (”⋮”) and select Settings.
The Settings dialog will open.
In network environments that require a proxy server to access the Internet, the Proxy Settings section of the Settings dialog allows you to configure the following:
Mode: Select the mode to use a proxy server. There are two options:
System Configuration mode: SDK Manager uses
https_proxyenvironment variables. If
https_proxyare not set, no proxy will be used in SDK Manager.
Manual Configuration mode: Manually set the proxy server information. SDK Manager uses the manual settings for networking, regardless of whether the
https_proxyenvironment variables are set or not.
Address: Set the proxy server IP address.
Port: Set the proxy server port to use.
Username and Password: Credentials required to use the proxy server, if applicable. In Manual Configuration mode, the password is encrypted and saved on the local disk.
Upon completion, SDK Manager uses these settings when it downloads software components.
Any special characters (for example, !,@,#, etc.) in the username or password field must be URL encoded.
Parts of the installation process use the
apt-get command to install external libraries directly or from a Docker container. Consequently, your
apt and Docker configurations must be set to access through the proxy to the Ubuntu repositories.
The Concurrent Downloads section of the Settings dialog allows you to change the maximum number of concurrent downloads that SDK Manager can perform.
Default number of concurrent downloads: 6 by default.
File concurrency can go up to 16 if the host has at least 8GB of RAM, or three if it has less than 8GB of RAM.
Maximum number of concurrent download threads per file: 12 by default.
File thread concurrency can go up to 16.
Use these settings to speed up SDK Manager component downloads.
SDK Manager Updates
The SDK Manager Updates section of the Settings dialog specifies how often SDK Manager will check for any updates that need to be installed. The available options are:
The default setting is every 7 days.
The Log Level has three options to choose from:
Standard – includes error, warning, and a summary of information.
Verbose – includes error, warning, a summary of info, and a verbose log that describes the issue.
Debug – includes error, warning, a summary of info, the verbose log, and debug information.
Standard is selected by default.
NVIDIA can collect usage data from SDK Manager. The Privacy Settings section of the Settings dialog allows you to enable or disable usage data collection. This setting is configured when you launch SDK Manager for the first time, but can be changed at any time in this menu. Click the hyperlink in the Privacy Settings section to change your usage data collection option.
