The AMD System Management Interface Library, or AMD SMI library, is a C library for Linux that provides a user space interface for applications to monitor and control AMD devices.

This tool acts as a command line interface for manipulating and monitoring the AMD GPU kernel, and is intended to replace and deprecate the existing CLI tool. It uses ctypes to call the rocm_smi_lib API.

The ROCm™ Data Center Tool simplifies the administration and addresses key infrastructure challenges in AMD GPUs in cluster and data center environments.
