Calling clEnqueueNDRangeKernel in a loop

Postby yildizabdullah » Mon Jun 29, 2015 8:59 am

I want to execute an OpenCL kernel multiple times.

I modified the hello-opencl example as follows:

Code: Select all
for(i = 0; i < 100; i++){
      err = clWaitForEvents(2,ev);

During running the loop, I get the following error after a while:

Code: Select all
hello-opencl.elf: e_alloc(): mmap failure.
ERROR: Can't allocate external memory buffer!

[2931] clmesg WARNING: e32pth_engine_needham.c(360): hardcoded to devnum=0

What did I do wrong here?

I don't have an answer for you, but I have seen this before on another application. Something changed with the COPRTHR interface to the eSDK with the newer eSDK. It didn't always happen, but it does now. If I had to guess, something with the eSDK isn't being properly freed since this appears to be a memory leak. If you still need an answer, run the application with cldebug and send the output to the COPRTHR developer, dar, on github.

Code: Select all
cldebug -- ./your_program
