C Specification

To enqueue a barrier command which waits for commands to complete, call the function

cl_int clEnqueueBarrier(
    cl_command_queue command_queue);
clEnqueueBarrier is deprecated by version 1.2.

Parameters

  • command_queue is a valid host command-queue.

Description

The barrier command waits for all commands previously enqueued in command_queue to complete before it completes. This command blocks command execution, that is, any following commands enqueued after it do not execute until it completes. The barrier command is a synchronization point.

clEnqueueBarrier returns CL_SUCCESS if the function is successfully executed. Otherwise, it returns one of the following errors:

  • CL_INVALID_COMMAND_QUEUE if command_queue is not a valid host command-queue.

  • CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the device.

  • CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the host.
