C Specification

To retain a command-queue, call the function

cl_int clRetainCommandQueue(
    cl_command_queue command_queue);

Parameters

  • command_queue specifies the command-queue to be retained.

Description

The command_queue reference count is incremented.

clCreateCommandQueueWithProperties and clCreateCommandQueue perform an implicit retain. This is very helpful for 3rd party libraries, which typically get a command-queue passed to them by the application. However, it is possible that the application may delete the command-queue without informing the library. Allowing functions to attach to (i.e. retain) and release a command-queue solves the problem of a command-queue being used by a library no longer being valid.

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

  • CL_INVALID_COMMAND_QUEUE if command_queue is not a valid 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.
