Increments the command_queue reference count.

cl_int clRetainCommandQueue(cl_command_queue command_queue)

Parameters

command_queue

Specifies the command-queue to retain.

Notes

clCreateCommandQueueWithProperties performs 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.

Errors

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

  • 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.
