Question: How can I use the System Analyser over X-Forwarding on macOS?
Answer: To view the System Analyser over X-forwarding on macOS, follow these steps:
On your macOS machine, download and install XQuartz from https://www.xquartz.org/.
Start the XQuartz app, and start a terminal session from within it.
In the terminal, enter
ssh -X [username]@[host], supplying the username and host for the remote machine.
In the SSH session, run the following commands (assuming you want to use version 2.7.2 of the System Analyser):
$ wget https://github.com/graphcore/popvision_system_analyser/releases/download/v2.7.2/popvision-system-analyser-2.7.2.AppImage $ chmod +x ./popvision-system-analyser-2.7.2.AppImage $ ./popvision-system-analyser-2.7.2.AppImage
The System Analyser application should then start up and work normally over X.
