Enqueues a command to unmap a previously mapped region of a memory object.

cl_int clEnqueueUnmapMemObject(cl_command_queue command_queue,
                               cl_mem memobj,
                               void *mapped_ptr,
                               cl_uint num_events_in_wait_list,
                               const cl_event *event_wait_list,
                               cl_event *event)

Parameters

command_queue

Must be a valid host command-queue.

memobj

A valid memory (buffer or image) object. The OpenCL context associated with command_queue and memobj must be the same.

mapped_ptr

The host address returned by a previous call to clEnqueueMapBuffer or clEnqueueMapImage for memobj.

event_wait_list , num_events_in_wait_list

Specify events that need to complete before clEnqueueUnmapMemObject can be executed. If event_wait_list is NULL, then clEnqueueUnmapMemObject does not wait on any event to complete. If event_wait_list is NULL, num_events_in_wait_list must be 0. If event_wait_list is not NULL, the list of events pointed to by event_wait_list must be valid and num_events_in_wait_list must be greater than 0. The events specified in event_wait_list act as synchronization points. The context associated with events in event_wait_list and command_queue must be the same. The memory associated with event_wait_list can be reused or freed after the function returns.

event

Returns an event object that identifies this particular copy command and can be used to query or queue a wait for this particular command to complete. event can be NULL in which case it will not be possible for the application to query the status of this command or queue a wait for this command to complete. clEnqueueBarrierWithWaitList can be used instead. If the event_wait_list and the event arguments are not NULL, the event argument should not refer to an element of the event_wait_list array.

Notes

Reads or writes from the host using the pointer returned by clEnqueueMapBuffer or clEnqueueMapImage are considered to be complete.

clEnqueueMapBuffer and clEnqueueMapImage increment the mapped count of the memory object. The initial mapped count value of a memory object is zero. Multiple calls to clEnqueueMapBuffer or clEnqueueMapImage on the same memory object will increment this mapped count by appropriate number of calls. clEnqueueUnmapMemObject decrements the mapped count of the memory object.

clEnqueueMapBuffer and clEnqueueMapImage act as synchronization points for a region of the buffer object being mapped.

Accessing mapped regions of a memory object

This section describes the behavior of OpenCL commands that access mapped regions of a memory object.

The contents of the region of a memory object and associated memory objects (sub-buffer objects or 1D image buffer objects that overlap this region) mapped for writing (i.e. CL_MAP_WRITE or CL_MAP_WRITE_INVALIDATE_REGION is set in map_flags argument to clEnqueueMapBuffer or clEnqueueMapImage) are considered to be undefined until this region is unmapped.

Multiple commands in command-queues can map a region or overlapping regions of a memory object and associated memory objects (sub-buffer objects or 1D image buffer objects that overlap this region) for reading (i.e. map_flags = CL_MAP_READ). The contents of the regions of a memory object mapped for reading can also be read by kernels and other OpenCL commands (such as clEnqueueCopyBuffer) executing on a device(s).

Mapping (and unmapping) overlapped regions in a memory object and/or associated memory objects (sub-buffer objects or 1D image buffer objects that overlap this region) for writing is an error and will result in CL_INVALID_OPERATION error returned by clEnqueueMapBuffer or clEnqueueMapImage.

If a memory object is currently mapped for writing, the application must ensure that the memory object is unmapped before any enqueued kernels or commands that read from or write to this memory object or any of its associated memory objects (sub-buffer or 1D image buffer objects) or its parent object (if the memory object is a sub-buffer or 1D image buffer object) begin execution; otherwise the behavior is undefined.

If a memory object is currently mapped for reading, the application must ensure that the memory object is unmapped before any enqueued kernels or commands that write to this memory object or any of its associated memory objects (sub-buffer or 1D image buffer objects) or its parent object (if the memory object is a sub-buffer or 1D image buffer object) begin execution; otherwise the behavior is undefined.

A memory object is considered as mapped if there are one or more active mappings for the memory object irrespective of whether the mapped regions span the entire memory object.

Accessing the contents of the memory region referred to by the mapped pointer that has been unmapped is undefined.

The mapped pointer returned by clEnqueueMapBuffer or clEnqueueMapImage can be used as ptr argument value to clEnqueueReadBuffer, clEnqueueWriteBuffer, clEnqueueReadBufferRect, clEnqueueWriteBufferRect, clEnqueueReadImage, and clEnqueueWriteImage, provided the rules described above are adhered to.

Errors

clEnqueueUnmapMemObject 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 host command-queue.

  • CL_INVALID_MEM_OBJECT if memobj is not a valid memory object or is a pipe object.

  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if mapped_ptr is not a valid pointer returned by clEnqueueMapBuffer or clEnqueueMapImage for memobj.

  • CL_INVALID_EVENT_WAIT_LIST if event_wait_list is NULL and num_events_in_wait_list > 0, or event_wait_list is not NULL and num_events_in_wait_list is 0, or if event objects in event_wait_list are not valid events.

  • 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.

  • CL_INVALID_CONTEXT if the context associated with command_queue and memobj are not the same or if the context associated with command_queue and events in event_wait_list are not the same.
