Software to View GPU Usage and VRAM Usage on Nouveau

On most of my systems I have an AMD GPU and would use Radeontop to view the GPU usage and VRAM usage. On my Trisquel systems I have Nvidia GPUs using the Nouveau drivers so that doesn't work. Can anybody recommend me software that would list the GPU and VRAM usage for GPUs using Nouveau ? The cards specifially are a GT 730 and a Quadro NVS 140M if that matters. Thanks in advance.

I haven't tested it since I don't use Nouveau, but have you tried MangoHud? I use it with the binary driver and with amdgpu and it works great.

That's a really good idea I hadn't thought of. I use MangoHud on my main system and it should work on the others as well.
