After having struggled around getting GPU mining working, I am a bit confused by "aticonfig". I am using poclbm for mining and I am pretty sure it uses the GPU, since the CPU is only about 50% and I am mining at about 52 MH/s. The weird thing is:

$ aticonfig --odgc  (while mining)

Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series                                                                                                                                                                                                 
                            Core (MHz)    Memory (MHz)                                                                                                                                                                                       
           Current Clocks :    575           900                                                                                                                                                                                             
             Current Peak :    575           900                                                                                                                                                                                             
  Configurable Peak Range : [500-700]     [750-1200]                                                                                                                                                                                         
                 GPU load :    0%

$ aticonfig --odgt

Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series         
                  Sensor 0: Temperature - 82.50 C

OS: Linux
AMD SDK: 2.6
ATI driver: 12.3 (latest)
Card: ATI Radeon HD 4830

My question now is, why doesn't aticonfig show me any GPU load.

I am not sure what you are using to mine, but I know if cgminer has connectivity issues it will stop using the gpu. I don't remember if it still shows its hash/sec though so not sure if that could be it.

I am using poclbm (version: 20120205). The interesting part is, when I overclocked the GPU a bit with AMDOverdriveCtrl, the hash rate got up to about 60 MH/s. Besides that, the System monitor tells me, that poclbm only uses 1% of the CPU, 25 MB of RAM. It is definitely not using the CPU.

Measuring gpu load is not supported on 48xx cards I believe.

When I started gpu mining a few months ago, it did show the GPU load.

If this is so you can hope that your card is special and you can mine without causing any load, so you can play games while mining.

Nope, unfortunately it isn't. After overclocking it again to 690/1030 it now shows me the GPU load, which is about 97%...
