clGetEventInfo

Returns information about the event object.

cl_int clGetEventInfo ( cl_event event,
  cl_event_info param_name,
  size_t param_value_size,
  void *param_value,
  size_t *param_value_size_ret)

Parameters

event

Specifies the event object being queried.

param_value

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

param_value_size

Specifies the size in bytes of memory pointed to by param_value. This size must be greater than or equal to the size of the return type as described in the table below.

param_value_size_ret

Returns the actual size in bytes of data copied to param_value. If param_value_size_ret is NULL, it is ignored.

param_name

Specifies the information to query. The list of supported param_name types and the information returned in param_value by clGetEventInfo is described in the table below:

cl_event_info Return Type Information returned in param_value
CL_EVENT_COMMAND_QUEUE cl_command_queue Return the command-queue associated with event.
CL_EVENT_COMMAND_TYPE cl_command_type

Return the command associated with event. Can be one of the following values:
CL_COMMAND_NDRANGE_KERNEL
CL_COMMAND_TASK
CL_COMMAND_NATIVE_KERNEL
CL_COMMAND_READ_BUFFER
CL_COMMAND_WRITE_BUFFER
CL_COMMAND_COPY_BUFFER
CL_COMMAND_READ_IMAGE
CL_COMMAND_WRITE_IMAGE
CL_COMMAND_COPY_IMAGE
CL_COMMAND_COPY_BUFFER_TO_IMAGE
CL_COMMAND_COPY_IMAGE_TO_BUFFER
CL_COMMAND_MAP_BUFFER
CL_COMMAND_MAP_IMAGE
CL_COMMAND_UNMAP_MEM_OBJECT
CL_COMMAND_MARKER
CL_COMMAND_ACQUIRE_GL_OBJECTS
CL_COMMAND_RELEASE_GL_OBJECTS

CL_EVENT_COMMAND_ EXECUTION_STATUS cl_int Return the execution status of the command identified by event. The valid values are:

CL_QUEUED (command has been enqueued in the command-queue),

CL_SUBMITTED (enqueued command has been submitted by the host to the device associated with the command-queue),

CL_RUNNING (device is currently executing this command),

CL_COMPLETE (the command has completed), or

Error code given by a negative integer value. (command was abnormally terminated – this may be caused by a bad memory access etc.)

CL_EVENT_REFERENCE_COUNT cl_uint Return the event reference count. The reference count returned should be considered immediately stale. It is unsuitable for general use in applications. This feature is provided for identifying memory leaks.

Notes

Using clGetEventInfo to determine if a command identified by event has finished execution (i.e. CL_EVENT_COMMAND_EXECUTION_STATUS returns CL_COMPLETE) is not a synchronization point. There are no guarantees that the memory objects being modified by command associated with event will be visible to other enqueued commands.

Errors

Returns CL_SUCCESS if the function executed successfully, or one of the errors below:

  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if param_name is not valid, or if size in bytes specified by param_value_size is less than size of return type as described in the table above and param_value is not NULL.
  • CL_INVALID_EVENT if event is not a valid event object.
