address range partially overlaps with existing allocation

address range partially overlaps with existing allocation

Hi folks

When attempting to write a short offload section I get the run time error

address range partially overlaps with existing allocation

but not sure where to start debugging this. Here's the code section in question (sorry it seems to have lost indenting):

#pragma omp parallel for default(none), private(i,k,term3,m,sum_Theta_Psi,n), shared(Theta_i, Psi, ln_Gamma_i, Q, molecules, maxGroupNum)
for (i=0; i<molecules; i++) {
for (k=0; k<maxGroupNum; k++) {
term3 = 0.0;
for (m=0; m<maxGroupNum; m++) {
sum_Theta_Psi = 0.0; // reuse var but not for 'i' component
#pragma vector always
for (n=0; n<maxGroupNum; n++) {
sum_Theta_Psi += Theta_i[i][n] * Psi[n][m];
term3 += Theta_i[i][m]*Psi[k][m] / sum_Theta_Psi;

// reset use of sum_Theta_Psi to be used for second term
sum_Theta_Psi = 0.0;
#pragma vector always
for (m=0; m<maxGroupNum; m++) {
sum_Theta_Psi += Theta_i[i][m] * Psi[m][k];
ln_Gamma_i[i][k] = Q[k] * (1.0 - log(sum_Theta_Psi) - term3);
} //for i
// omp parallel for

} // pragma offload

YOurs, mIchael

I have encountered this error when I tried to create coprocessor side arrays without the correspoding host arrays. However, it is difficult to tell what exactly is going wrong in your code. Could you share a little more of your code that includes the offload pragma and the declarations/allocations of the data passed to the offload. 

Hi Sumedh and co... I can't really share the full code since it is one a colleague is working on for publication (sorry) but here's the offload pragma:

#pragma offload target(mic) in(Theta_i:length(molecules*maxGroupNum)) in(Psi:length(maxGroupNum*maxGroupNum)) in(Q:length(maxGroupNum)) in(molecules, maxGroupNum)   inout(ln_Gamma_i:length(molecules*maxGroupNum))

with the arrays passed as float*/int* and float**



Do the actual allocations on the host match those specified in the offload?

Hi Jim, yes I below all allocations match. For ease, attached is a smaller test.c + helper function alloc_2d_float.c that illustrate my problem more sincintly. Yours, Michael.

Hi Michael, 

Sorry for this super late reply. I looked through your reproducer and noticed that you are trying to transfer data of type float** to the coprocessor. The offload pragma does not support complex data types with pointers and non-contiguous blocks of data. You could either modify your code to fulfill this requirement or could use the virtual shared memory model. Please note that although the shared memory provides easy portability, the overhead and synchronization required in this method leads to a sub-optimal performance. 


Sumedh is correct. You will want something like:

float* Adata = &A[0][0];
float* Bdata = &B[0][0];
float* Cdata = &C[0][0];
#pragma offload target(mic) 
  in (Adata:length(size1*size2))     
  float **A, **B, **C; // rows x cols
  A = alloc_2d_float_offload(Adata, size1, size2); //create array of pointers without allocating data
  B = alloc_2d_float_offload(Bdata, size2, size2); // this function inside MIC
  C = alloc_2d_float_offload(Cdata, size1, size2);
  free(A); // but not Adata
  free(B); // but not Bdata
  free(C); // but not Cdata
