Caught exception clCreateContext failed while running multiple executions on GPU

Post by gegupta »

Hello,
I am trying to come up with a script to run multiple execution of resize on number of images against GPU and would run the same against CPU as well.
I have compiled my IM with the following command

Code: Select all

 ./configure --enable-shared --enable-static --with-webp --with-png --with-jpeg --with-tiff --with-pangocairo --enable-opencl LIBS=-ldl -lpng LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include
Version used : 6.9.9-26 Q16

Code: Select all

# identify -version
Version: ImageMagick 6.9.9-26 Q16 x86_64 2017-12-14 http://www.imagemagick.org
Copyright: © 1999-2017 ImageMagick Studio LLC
License: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/license.php
Features: Cipher DPC OpenCL OpenMP
Delegates (built-in): jbig jng jpeg ltdl lzma png tiff webp zlib
I am controlling CPU vs GPU through option : MAGICK_OCL_DEVICE

Code I am using resizeGPU400.cpp

Code: Select all

#include <dirent.h>
#include <cstring>
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <tr1/memory>
#include <ImageMagick-6/Magick++.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <ctime>
#include <stdlib.h>

using namespace std;
using namespace Magick;

namespace {
std::vector<std::string> GetDirectoryFiles(const std::string& dir) {
  std::vector<std::string> files;
  std::tr1::shared_ptr<DIR> directory_ptr(opendir(dir.c_str()), [](DIR* dir){ dir && closedir(dir); });
  struct dirent *dirent_ptr;
  if (!directory_ptr) {
    std::cout << "Error opening : " << std::strerror(errno) << dir << std::endl;
    return files;
  }

  while ((dirent_ptr = readdir(directory_ptr.get())) != nullptr) {
    files.push_back(std::string(dirent_ptr->d_name));
  }
  return files;
}
}  // namespace

int main() {
  setenv("MAGICK_OCL_DEVICE","ON",1);
std::cout << "MAGICK_OCL_DEVICE = " << getenv("MAGICK_OCL_DEVICE") << std::endl;
  Image image;
  std::string dir_path="/home/gegupta/GPUvsCPU/";
  const auto& directory_path = dir_path;//std::string("/home/gegupta/images");
  const auto& files = GetDirectoryFiles(directory_path);
  for (const auto& file : files) {
    try{
//      std::cout << file << std::endl;
        std::string full_path = dir_path + file;
        if(full_path.find(".jpg")!=std::string::npos || full_path.find(".png")!=std::string::npos || full_path.find(".jpeg")!=std::string::npos){
//              std::cout << full_path << std::endl;
                image.read( full_path );

                int start_s=clock();
                image.resize( Geometry(400,400) );
                int stop_s=clock();
                cout << file<<"," << (stop_s-start_s)/double(CLOCKS_PER_SEC)*1000 << endl;
        //      std::string resized_path = "/home/gegupta/resized/CPU/400/" + file;
        //      image.write( resized_path);
        }
    }catch( Exception &error_ )
    {
      cout << "Caught exception: " << error_.what() << endl;
      return 1;
    }

  }
  return 0;

Script i am using

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
echo $1
START=1
END=$1

for (( c=$START; c<=$END; c++ ))
do
        echo -n "$c "
 ./resizeGPU400 &
done
wait
echo All done

How i am running above script :

Code: Select all

 time ./runMultiple.sh 42
As soon as i increase the argument to the script to 43 it fails with following error and most of the processes don't start
Caught exception: Magick: clCreateContext failed. (-5) @ warning/opencl.c/InitOpenCLEnvInternal/1439
Even if i divided the execution by running 20 in one and running 20 in other, still same problem. Just to add if you monitor htop when you start the script if i use 43 in the argument the amount of memory usage grows much higher to what it is for 42 processes.

I have 4 such GPUs in a single machine

Code: Select all

lshw -C display

What am i doing wrong? I might be hitting some race conditions etc. My aim is to maximize throughput on all the GPU cards i have. i can reach 100% in GPU-util even before by running 20-30 processes but some how it doesn't use multiple GPU cores.
Do you have a sample code which i can use to orchestrate program to load balance between all the available devices?

Thanks

What happens when you use Imagemagick 7 instead?
.NET + ImageMagick = Magick.NET https://github.com/dlemstra/Magick.NET, @MagickNET, Donate

I have not tried ImageMagick 7 as the version of imagemagick we have in production is ImageMagick 6. Was there any patch in ImageMagick 7?

Update: I tried with ImageMagick-7 and same issue.
