C Specification

To wait for events to complete, call the function

cl_int clWaitForEvents(
    cl_uint num_events,
    const cl_event* event_list);

Parameters

  • num_events is the number of events in event_list.

  • event_list is a pointer to a list of event object handles.

Description

This function waits on the host thread for commands identified by event objects in event_list to complete. A command is considered complete if its execution status is CL_COMPLETE or a negative value. The events specified in event_list act as synchronization points.

clWaitForEvents returns CL_SUCCESS if the execution status of all events in event_list is CL_COMPLETE. Otherwise, it returns one of the following errors:

  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if num_events is zero or event_list is NULL.

  • CL_INVALID_CONTEXT if events specified in event_list do not belong to the same context.

  • CL_INVALID_EVENT if event objects specified in event_list are not valid event objects.

  • CL_EXEC_STATUS_ERROR_FOR_EVENTS_IN_WAIT_LIST if the execution status of any of the events in event_list is a negative integer value. This error code is missing before version 1.1.

  • 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.
