cuda::latch

Defined in header <cuda/latch>:

template <cuda::thread_scope Scope>
class cuda::latch;

The class template cuda::latch is an extended form of cuda::std::latch takes an additional cuda::thread_scope argument. It has the same interface and semantics as cuda::std::latch.

Concurrency Restrictions

An object of type cuda::latch or cuda::std::latch shall not be accessed concurrently by CPU and GPU threads unless:

Note, for objects of scopes other than cuda::thread_scope_system this is a data-race, and thefore also prohibited regardless of memory characteristics.

Under CUDA Compute Capability 6 (Pascal) or prior, an object of type cuda::latch or cuda::std::latch may not be used.

Implementation-Defined Behavior

For each cuda::thread_scope S, the value of cuda::latch<S>::max() is as follows:

cuda::thread_scope S cuda::latch<S>::max()
Any cuda::std::numeric_limits<cuda::std::ptrdiff_t>::max()

Example

#include <cuda/latch>

__global__ void example_kernel() {
  // This latch is suitable for all threads in the system.
  cuda::latch<cuda::thread_scope_system> a(10);

  // This latch has the same type as the previous one (`a`).
  cuda::std::latch b(10);

  // This latch is suitable for all threads on the current processor (e.g. GPU).
  cuda::latch<cuda::thread_scope_device> c(10);

  // This latch is suitable for all threads in the same thread block.
  cuda::latch<cuda::thread_scope_block> d(10);
}
