Function Documentation

CUresult cuStreamAddCallback (CUstream hStream, CUstreamCallback callback, void * userData, unsigned int flags)

Note:
This function is slated for eventual deprecation and removal. If you do not require the callback to execute in case of a device error, consider using cuLaunchHostFunc. Additionally, this function is not supported with cuStreamBeginCapture and cuStreamEndCapture, unlike cuLaunchHostFunc.
Adds a callback to be called on the host after all currently enqueued items in the stream have completed. For each cuStreamAddCallback call, the callback will be executed exactly once. The callback will block later work in the stream until it is finished.
The callback may be passed CUDA_SUCCESS or an error code. In the event of a device error, all subsequently executed callbacks will receive an appropriate CUresult.
Callbacks must not make any CUDA API calls. Attempting to use a CUDA API will result in CUDA_ERROR_NOT_PERMITTED. Callbacks must not perform any synchronization that may depend on outstanding device work or other callbacks that are not mandated to run earlier. Callbacks without a mandated order (in independent streams) execute in undefined order and may be serialized.
For the purposes of Unified Memory, callback execution makes a number of guarantees:
o The callback stream is considered idle for the duration of the callback. Thus, for example, a callback may always use memory attached to the callback stream.
o The start of execution of a callback has the same effect as synchronizing an event recorded in the same stream immediately prior to the callback. It thus synchronizes streams which have been ’joined’ prior to the callback.
o Adding device work to any stream does not have the effect of making the stream active until all preceding host functions and stream callbacks have executed. Thus, for example, a callback might use global attached memory even if work has been added to another stream, if the work has been ordered behind the callback with an event.
o Completion of a callback does not cause a stream to become active except as described above. The callback stream will remain idle if no device work follows the callback, and will remain idle across consecutive callbacks without device work in between. Thus, for example, stream synchronization can be done by signaling from a callback at the end of the stream.
Parameters:
hStream - Stream to add callback to
callback - The function to call once preceding stream operations are complete
userData - User specified data to be passed to the callback function
flags - Reserved for future use, must be 0
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED
Note:
This function uses standard semantics.
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

CUresult cuStreamAttachMemAsync (CUstream hStream, CUdeviceptr dptr, size_t length, unsigned int flags)

Enqueues an operation in hStream to specify stream association of length bytes of memory starting from dptr. This function is a stream-ordered operation, meaning that it is dependent on, and will only take effect when, previous work in stream has completed. Any previous association is automatically replaced.
dptr must point to one of the following types of memories:
o managed memory declared using the __managed__ keyword or allocated with cuMemAllocManaged.
o a valid host-accessible region of system-allocated pageable memory. This type of memory may only be specified if the device associated with the stream reports a non-zero value for the device attribute CU_DEVICE_ATTRIBUTE_PAGEABLE_MEMORY_ACCESS.
For managed allocations, length must be either zero or the entire allocation’s size. Both indicate that the entire allocation’s stream association is being changed. Currently, it is not possible to change stream association for a portion of a managed allocation.
For pageable host allocations, length must be non-zero.
The stream association is specified using flags which must be one of CUmemAttach_flags. If the CU_MEM_ATTACH_GLOBAL flag is specified, the memory can be accessed by any stream on any device. If the CU_MEM_ATTACH_HOST flag is specified, the program makes a guarantee that it won’t access the memory on the device from any stream on a device that has a zero value for the device attribute CU_DEVICE_ATTRIBUTE_CONCURRENT_MANAGED_ACCESS. If the CU_MEM_ATTACH_SINGLE flag is specified and hStream is associated with a device that has a zero value for the device attribute CU_DEVICE_ATTRIBUTE_CONCURRENT_MANAGED_ACCESS, the program makes a guarantee that it will only access the memory on the device from hStream. It is illegal to attach singly to the NULL stream, because the NULL stream is a virtual global stream and not a specific stream. An error will be returned in this case.
When memory is associated with a single stream, the Unified Memory system will allow CPU access to this memory region so long as all operations in hStream have completed, regardless of whether other streams are active. In effect, this constrains exclusive ownership of the managed memory region by an active GPU to per-stream activity instead of whole-GPU activity.
Accessing memory on the device from streams that are not associated with it will produce undefined results. No error checking is performed by the Unified Memory system to ensure that kernels launched into other streams do not access this region.
It is a program’s responsibility to order calls to cuStreamAttachMemAsync via events, synchronization or other means to ensure legal access to memory at all times. Data visibility and coherency will be changed appropriately for all kernels which follow a stream-association change.
If hStream is destroyed while data is associated with it, the association is removed and the association reverts to the default visibility of the allocation as specified at cuMemAllocManaged. For __managed__ variables, the default association is always CU_MEM_ATTACH_GLOBAL. Note that destroying a stream is an asynchronous operation, and as a result, the change to default association won’t happen until all work in the stream has completed.
Parameters:
hStream - Stream in which to enqueue the attach operation
dptr - Pointer to memory (must be a pointer to managed memory or to a valid host-accessible region of system-allocated pageable memory)
length - Length of memory
flags - Must be one of CUmemAttach_flags
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED
Note:
This function uses standard semantics.
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

CUresult cuStreamBeginCapture (CUstream hStream, CUstreamCaptureMode mode)

Begin graph capture on hStream. When a stream is in capture mode, all operations pushed into the stream will not be executed, but will instead be captured into a graph, which will be returned via cuStreamEndCapture. Capture may not be initiated if stream is CU_STREAM_LEGACY. Capture must be ended on the same stream in which it was initiated, and it may only be initiated if the stream is not already in capture mode. The capture mode may be queried via cuStreamIsCapturing. A unique id representing the capture sequence may be queried via cuStreamGetCaptureInfo.
If mode is not CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_RELAXED, cuStreamEndCapture must be called on this stream from the same thread.
Parameters:
hStream - Stream in which to initiate capture
mode - Controls the interaction of this capture sequence with other API calls that are potentially unsafe. For more details see cuThreadExchangeStreamCaptureMode.
Note:
Kernels captured using this API must not use texture and surface references. Reading or writing through any texture or surface reference is undefined behavior. This restriction does not apply to texture and surface objects.
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

CUresult cuStreamCreate (CUstream * phStream, unsigned int Flags)

Creates a stream and returns a handle in phStream. The Flags argument determines behaviors of the stream. Valid values for Flags are:
o CU_STREAM_DEFAULT: Default stream creation flag.
o CU_STREAM_NON_BLOCKING: Specifies that work running in the created stream may run concurrently with work in stream 0 (the NULL stream), and that the created stream should perform no implicit synchronization with stream 0.
Parameters:
phStream - Returned newly created stream
Flags - Parameters for stream creation
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE, CUDA_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

CUresult cuStreamCreateWithPriority (CUstream * phStream, unsigned int flags, int priority)

Creates a stream with the specified priority and returns a handle in phStream. This API alters the scheduler priority of work in the stream. Work in a higher priority stream may preempt work already executing in a low priority stream.
priority follows a convention where lower numbers represent higher priorities. ’0’ represents default priority. The range of meaningful numerical priorities can be queried using cuCtxGetStreamPriorityRange. If the specified priority is outside the numerical range returned by cuCtxGetStreamPriorityRange, it will automatically be clamped to the lowest or the highest number in the range.
Parameters:
phStream - Returned newly created stream
flags - Flags for stream creation. See cuStreamCreate for a list of valid flags
priority - Stream priority. Lower numbers represent higher priorities. See cuCtxGetStreamPriorityRange for more information about meaningful stream priorities that can be passed.
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE, CUDA_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.
Stream priorities are supported only on GPUs with compute capability 3.5 or higher.
In the current implementation, only compute kernels launched in priority streams are affected by the stream’s priority. Stream priorities have no effect on host-to-device and device-to-host memory operations.

CUresult cuStreamDestroy (CUstream hStream)

Destroys the stream specified by hStream.
In case the device is still doing work in the stream hStream when cuStreamDestroy() is called, the function will return immediately and the resources associated with hStream will be released automatically once the device has completed all work in hStream.
Parameters:
hStream - Stream to destroy
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

cuStreamCreate, cuStreamWaitEvent, cuStreamQuery, cuStreamSynchronize, cuStreamAddCallback, cudaStreamDestroy

CUresult cuStreamEndCapture (CUstream hStream, CUgraph * phGraph)

End capture on hStream, returning the captured graph via phGraph. Capture must have been initiated on hStream via a call to cuStreamBeginCapture. If capture was invalidated, due to a violation of the rules of stream capture, then a NULL graph will be returned.
If the mode argument to cuStreamBeginCapture was not CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_RELAXED, this call must be from the same thread as cuStreamBeginCapture.
Parameters:
hStream - Stream to query
phGraph - The captured graph
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE, CUDA_ERROR_STREAM_CAPTURE_WRONG_THREAD
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

cuStreamCreate, cuStreamBeginCapture, cuStreamIsCapturing

CUresult cuStreamGetCaptureInfo (CUstream hStream, CUstreamCaptureStatus * captureStatus, cuuint64_t * id)

Query the capture status of a stream and and get an id for the capture sequence, which is unique over the lifetime of the process.
If called on CU_STREAM_LEGACY (the ’null stream’) while a stream not created with CU_STREAM_NON_BLOCKING is capturing, returns CUDA_ERROR_STREAM_CAPTURE_IMPLICIT.
A valid id is returned only if both of the following are true:
o the call returns CUDA_SUCCESS
o captureStatus is set to CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_STATUS_ACTIVE
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_STREAM_CAPTURE_IMPLICIT
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.
See also:
cuStreamBeginCapture, cuStreamIsCapturing

CUresult cuStreamGetCtx (CUstream hStream, CUcontext * pctx)

Returns the CUDA context that the stream is associated with.
The stream handle hStream can refer to any of the following:
o a stream created via any of the CUDA driver APIs such as cuStreamCreate and cuStreamCreateWithPriority, or their runtime API equivalents such as cudaStreamCreate, cudaStreamCreateWithFlags and cudaStreamCreateWithPriority. The returned context is the context that was active in the calling thread when the stream was created. Passing an invalid handle will result in undefined behavior.
o any of the special streams such as the NULL stream, CU_STREAM_LEGACY and CU_STREAM_PER_THREAD. The runtime API equivalents of these are also accepted, which are NULL, cudaStreamLegacy and cudaStreamPerThread respectively. Specifying any of the special handles will return the context current to the calling thread. If no context is current to the calling thread, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT is returned.
Parameters:
hStream - Handle to the stream to be queried
pctx - Returned context associated with the stream
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE,
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

CUresult cuStreamGetFlags (CUstream hStream, unsigned int * flags)

Query the flags of a stream created using cuStreamCreate or cuStreamCreateWithPriority and return the flags in flags.
Parameters:
hStream - Handle to the stream to be queried
flags - Pointer to an unsigned integer in which the stream’s flags are returned The value returned in flags is a logical ’OR’ of all flags that were used while creating this stream. See cuStreamCreate for the list of valid flags
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE, CUDA_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

cuStreamDestroy, cuStreamCreate, cuStreamGetPriority, cudaStreamGetFlags

CUresult cuStreamGetPriority (CUstream hStream, int * priority)

Query the priority of a stream created using cuStreamCreate or cuStreamCreateWithPriority and return the priority in priority. Note that if the stream was created with a priority outside the numerical range returned by cuCtxGetStreamPriorityRange, this function returns the clamped priority. See cuStreamCreateWithPriority for details about priority clamping.
Parameters:
hStream - Handle to the stream to be queried
priority - Pointer to a signed integer in which the stream’s priority is returned
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE, CUDA_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

CUresult cuStreamIsCapturing (CUstream hStream, CUstreamCaptureStatus * captureStatus)

Return the capture status of hStream via captureStatus. After a successful call, *captureStatus will contain one of the following:
o CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_STATUS_NONE: The stream is not capturing.
o CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_STATUS_ACTIVE: The stream is capturing.
o CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_STATUS_INVALIDATED: The stream was capturing but an error has invalidated the capture sequence. The capture sequence must be terminated with cuStreamEndCapture on the stream where it was initiated in order to continue using hStream.
Note that, if this is called on CU_STREAM_LEGACY (the ’null stream’) while a blocking stream in the same context is capturing, it will return CUDA_ERROR_STREAM_CAPTURE_IMPLICIT and *captureStatus is unspecified after the call. The blocking stream capture is not invalidated.
When a blocking stream is capturing, the legacy stream is in an unusable state until the blocking stream capture is terminated. The legacy stream is not supported for stream capture, but attempted use would have an implicit dependency on the capturing stream(s).
Parameters:
hStream - Stream to query
captureStatus - Returns the stream’s capture status
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE, CUDA_ERROR_STREAM_CAPTURE_IMPLICIT
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

cuStreamCreate, cuStreamBeginCapture, cuStreamEndCapture

CUresult cuStreamQuery (CUstream hStream)

Returns CUDA_SUCCESS if all operations in the stream specified by hStream have completed, or CUDA_ERROR_NOT_READY if not.
For the purposes of Unified Memory, a return value of CUDA_SUCCESS is equivalent to having called cuStreamSynchronize().
Parameters:
hStream - Stream to query status of
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_READY
Note:
This function uses standard semantics.
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.
See also:
cuStreamCreate, cuStreamWaitEvent, cuStreamDestroy, cuStreamSynchronize, cuStreamAddCallback, cudaStreamQuery

CUresult cuStreamSynchronize (CUstream hStream)

Waits until the device has completed all operations in the stream specified by hStream. If the context was created with the CU_CTX_SCHED_BLOCKING_SYNC flag, the CPU thread will block until the stream is finished with all of its tasks.
Parameters:
hStream - Stream to wait for
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE
Note:
This function uses standard semantics.
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.
See also:
cuStreamCreate, cuStreamDestroy, cuStreamWaitEvent, cuStreamQuery, cuStreamAddCallback, cudaStreamSynchronize

CUresult cuStreamWaitEvent (CUstream hStream, CUevent hEvent, unsigned int Flags)

Makes all future work submitted to hStream wait for all work captured in hEvent. See cuEventRecord() for details on what is captured by an event. The synchronization will be performed efficiently on the device when applicable. hEvent may be from a different context or device than hStream.
Parameters:
hStream - Stream to wait
hEvent - Event to wait on (may not be NULL)
Flags - Parameters for the operation (must be 0)
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_CONTEXT, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE,
Note:
This function uses standard semantics.
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.

CUresult cuThreadExchangeStreamCaptureMode (CUstreamCaptureMode * mode)

Sets the calling thread’s stream capture interaction mode to the value contained in *mode, and overwrites *mode with the previous mode for the thread. To facilitate deterministic behavior across function or module boundaries, callers are encouraged to use this API in a push-pop fashion:
     CUstreamCaptureMode mode = desiredMode;
     cuThreadExchangeStreamCaptureMode(&mode);
     ...
     cuThreadExchangeStreamCaptureMode(&mode); // restore previous mode

During stream capture (see cuStreamBeginCapture), some actions, such as a call to cudaMalloc, may be unsafe. In the case of cudaMalloc, the operation is not enqueued asynchronously to a stream, and is not observed by stream capture. Therefore, if the sequence of operations captured via cuStreamBeginCapture depended on the allocation being replayed whenever the graph is launched, the captured graph would be invalid.
Therefore, stream capture places restrictions on API calls that can be made within or concurrently to a cuStreamBeginCapture-cuStreamEndCapture sequence. This behavior can be controlled via this API and flags to cuStreamBeginCapture.
A thread’s mode is one of the following:
o CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_GLOBAL: This is the default mode. If the local thread has an ongoing capture sequence that was not initiated with CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_RELAXED at cuStreamBeginCapture, or if any other thread has a concurrent capture sequence initiated with CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_GLOBAL, this thread is prohibited from potentially unsafe API calls.
o CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_THREAD_LOCAL: If the local thread has an ongoing capture sequence not initiated with CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_RELAXED, it is prohibited from potentially unsafe API calls. Concurrent capture sequences in other threads are ignored.
o CU_STREAM_CAPTURE_MODE_RELAXED: The local thread is not prohibited from potentially unsafe API calls. Note that the thread is still prohibited from API calls which necessarily conflict with stream capture, for example, attempting cuEventQuery on an event that was last recorded inside a capture sequence.
Parameters:
mode - Pointer to mode value to swap with the current mode
Returns:
CUDA_SUCCESS, CUDA_ERROR_DEINITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED, CUDA_ERROR_INVALID_VALUE
Note:
Note that this function may also return error codes from previous, asynchronous launches.
