Getting "HAL Kern Error: Read/Write failed from addr x, read y expected z" when running multithread OpenCL application on CycloneV SoC

To ensure, that I didn't just write an incorrect program, I used the standard multithread example: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/design-examples/desig...

 

As there is no arm32 version of that example, I checked the difference between exm_opencl_hello_world_arm32_linux and exm_opencl_hello_world_x64_linux from https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/design-examples/desig....

 

As the only difference was the Makefile, I applied the same changes to the Makefile of exm_opencl_multithread_vector_operation_x64_linux.

 

diff exm_opencl_hello_world_x64_linux/hello_world/Makefile exm_opencl_hello_world_arm32_linux/hello_world/Makefile 43,44c43,44 < AOCL_COMPILE_CONFIG := $(shell aocl compile-config ) < AOCL_LINK_CONFIG := $(shell aocl link-config ) --- > AOCL_COMPILE_CONFIG := $(shell aocl compile-config --arm) > AOCL_LINK_CONFIG := $(shell aocl link-config --arm) 53,54c53,54 < # Compiler < CXX := g++ --- > # Compiler. ARM cross-compiler. > CXX := arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++

Using the changed Makefile, I compiled the multithread example:

cd exm_opencl_multithread_vector_operation_x64_linux/multithread_vector_operation/ PATH="/opt/intelFPGA/19.1/embedded/ds-5/sw/gcc/bin/:$INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/bin:$PATH" \ AOCL_BOARD_PACKAGE_ROOT="$INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/board/de10_standard" \ VERBOSE=1 make PATH="/opt/intelFPGA/19.1/embedded/ds-5/sw/gcc/bin/:$INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/bin:$PATH" \ AOCL_BOARD_PACKAGE_ROOT="$INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/board/de10_standard" \ aoc -board=de10_standard_sharedonly -v device/vector_op.cl -o bin/vector_op.aocx

Running the program sometimes succeeds, but often results in a crash:

root@socfpga:~# ./host Initializing OpenCL Platform: Intel(R) FPGA SDK for OpenCL(TM) Using 1 device(s) de10_standard_sharedonly : Cyclone V SoC Development Kit Using AOCX: vector_op.aocx Reprogramming device [0] with handle 1 Thread1 created successfully Thread2 created successfully Instantiating a new problem with args: N=100000 kernel_name=vector_mult Instantiating a new problem with args: N=100000 kernel_name=vector_add Launching for device 0 (100000 elements) Launching for device 0 (100000 elements) HAL Kern Error: Read failed from addr 1080, read -1234493200 expected 4 HAL Kern Error: Read failed from addr 20, read -1234493200 expected 4   Time: 20.714 ms Kernel time (device 0): 1.098 ms HAL Kern Error: Write failed to addr 1080 with value 0, wrote -1234493200 expected 4 HAL Kern Error: Read failed from addr 20, read -1234493200 expected 4 Segmentation fault

 

Is multithreadding not supported on arm32?

Hi ,

Can you please post the results of "lsmod" command in the device terminal after the issue has happened.

Hi,

​thank you for your response.

The output of lsmod seems to always be:

root@socfpga:~# lsmod Module Size Used by aclsoc_drv 8916 0 root@socfpga:~#

While reproducing the error, I observed one additional erroneous behavior:

Sometimes, the application just doesn't finish and instead hangs. I've attached the output of several program executions. If the program didn't finish, I aborted it with control-C, the application did still react to that. In the attached log these cases can be identified by the "^C" at the end of the program output.

Hi are you using a custom made board for running the openCL.

In that case please use the following api in the code aocl_mmd_get_info

and let us know the results.

In particular we would be interested in results with following

AOCL_MMD_BOARD_NAME

AOCL_MMD_CONCURRENT_READS Number of parallel reads( A value of 1 indicates serial reads.)

AOCL_MMD_CONCURRENT_WRITES Number of parallel writes (A value of 1 indicates serial writes).

AOCL_MMD_CONCURRENT_READS_OR_WRITE S Total number of concurrent read and write operations .

Please refer here

Hi I am having a similar problem on the de10 nano board. After checking the corresponding source code, I found out that the MMD library is of version 14.1 and it does not have AOCL_MMD_CONCURRENT_READS and AOCL_MMD_CONCURRENT_WRITES defined. So I guess it might be the problem? And how shall we update this library? Is there any off-the-shelf code I could take advantage of?

Thanks!

Hi,

sorry I can't currently get that Information as the University is currently closed (because of corona) and I'm at home without FPGA.

 

Using a chroot environment I could however find out that AOCL_MMD_VERSION is only 14.1 so this is likely to be the problem, I think.

Hi ,

Please let us know the results , after you get a chance to update the MMD .

Stay Safe
