C Specification

To get information specific to a pipe object created with clCreatePipe, call the function

cl_int clGetPipeInfo(
    cl_mem pipe,
    cl_pipe_info param_name,
    size_t param_value_size,
    void* param_value,
    size_t* param_value_size_ret);
clGetPipeInfo is missing before version 2.0.

Parameters

  • pipe specifies the pipe object being queried.

  • param_name specifies the information to query. The list of supported param_name types and the information returned in param_value by clGetPipeInfo is described in the Pipe Object Queries table.

  • param_value is a pointer to memory where the appropriate result being queried is returned. If param_value is NULL, it is ignored.

  • param_value_size is used to specify the size in bytes of memory pointed to by param_value. This size must be ≥ size of return type as described in the Pipe Object Queries table.

  • param_value_size_ret returns the actual size in bytes of data being queried by param_name. If param_value_size_ret is NULL, it is ignored.

Description

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

  • CL_INVALID_MEM_OBJECT if pipe is a not a valid pipe object.

  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if param_name is not valid, or if size in bytes specified by param_value_size is < size of return type as described in the Pipe Object Queries table and param_value is not NULL.

  • 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.

Pipe Info Return type Description

CL_PIPE_PACKET_SIZE

missing before version 2.0.

cl_uint

Return pipe packet size specified when pipe is created with clCreatePipe.

CL_PIPE_MAX_PACKETS

missing before version 2.0.

cl_uint

Return max. number of packets specified when pipe is created with clCreatePipe.

CL_PIPE_PROPERTIES

missing before version 3.0.

cl_pipe_properties[]

Return the properties argument specified in clCreatePipe.

If the properties argument specified in clCreatePipe used to create pipe was not NULL, the implementation must return the values specified in the properties argument in the same order and without including additional properties.

If the properties argument specified in clCreatePipe used to create pipe was NULL, the implementation must return param_value_size_ret equal to 0, indicating that there are no properties to be returned.
