FFTW wrapper on MIC

FFTW wrapper on MIC

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to run the MKL fftw wrapper on MIC, but it doesn't work. The code compiles and I can run the binary, but since I don't have the offload report I guess that code don't was really executed on MIC. The code is this:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <fftw3.h>

// MAX 480

#define N1 1000
#define N2 1000
#define N3 1000

double getTimeElapsed(struct timeval end, struct timeval start) {
    return (end.tv_sec - start.tv_sec) + (end.tv_usec - start.tv_usec) / 1000000.00;

int compute3DFFT(fftw_complex *dest, fftw_complex *src, int dim1, int dim2, int dim3, int type, unsigned int flags ) {

	if( !dest || !src || dim1<1 || dim2<1 || dim3<1 ) return 0;


	fftw_plan p = fftw_plan_dft_3d(dim1, dim2, dim3, src, dest, type, flags);
	#pragma offload target(mic:0) nocopy(p)

	return 1;


void print(fftw_complex *f, int n){

	int i;
	for(i=0; i<n; i++)
		printf("%d: (%g,%gi)\n", i, f[i][0], f[i][1]);


int main(void) {
	int i;
	fftw_complex *src, *dest;
	double time_elapsed;
	struct timeval start, end;

    	gettimeofday(&start, NULL);


	src = (fftw_complex*) fftw_malloc(sizeof(fftw_complex) * N1 * N2 * N3);
	dest = (fftw_complex*) fftw_malloc(sizeof(fftw_complex) * N1 * N2 * N3);

	for(i=0; i<N1*N2*N3; i++) {
		src[i][0] = i + 1.0;
		src[i][1] = i + 2.0;

	//print(src, N1*N2*N3);

	compute3DFFT(dest, src, N1, N2, N3, FFTW_FORWARD, FFTW_ESTIMATE);

	print(dest, N1*N2*N3);*/

	fftw_free(src); fftw_free(dest);

	gettimeofday(&end, NULL);
    time_elapsed = getTimeElapsed(end, start);

    printf("Time: %.3f seconds\n", time_elapsed);
	return 0;

I already changed nocopy(p) to in(p) and I get some warnings but the code executed in the same way.

I compiled with this command:

icc -o Xeon fftw_libmic.c -L$MKLROOT/lib/intel64 -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_core -lmkl_intel_thread -lpthread -lm -openmp -I$MKLROOT/include/fftw  -offload-attribute-target=mic -offload-option,mic,compiler,"  -L$MKLROOT/lib/mic -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_core -lmkl_intel_thread"

I also make export MKL_MIC_ENABLE=1 and export OFFLOAD_REPORT=2

Like I said, this code runs but only on CPU.

Can you help me ?

Best Regards

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

I have not tried to do FFTs using offload, but aren't your arrays too big for the Xeon Phi?

If "fftw_complex" is based on "doubles", then your src and dest arrays are each 14.9 GiB.    Even with "float" variables, the two arrays would take 14.9 GiB together.

Also, the fftw_plan needs to be created/destroyed in an offload.

#pragma offload target(mic:0) 
fftw_plan p = fftw_plan_dft_3d(dim1, dim2, dim3, src, dest, type, flags);


Thank you both.

I tried the solution of Jeongnim but didn't work.
