Intel IPP Memory corruption

Dear All,

 

There is a problem persisting with Intel IPP "copy" and "move" functions, when the size in bytes exceeds 2GB. (INT_MAX) This issue is more than 10 years old, but we recently bumped in to it again.

Because this is a memory overwrite error, it is very hard to make a test case that fails in the same way on all computers. Mostly we saw this issue with

ippsmove_64f

ippscopy_64f

 

Which can reach 16GB for "int" type of the array length. Somewhere in the logic of these two functions there must be something that overflows occasionally when memory to be copied is larger than 2GB. Maybe they internally partially rely on the logic copied from ippscopy_8u.

 

But it could be that the problem is generally applicable to all ippscopy/ippsmove functions.

Having a test always present that is copying data larger than 2GB is also "trouble", because it will be slow.

 

Could you please have a look at the code and see what could be going wrong for AVX2 and AVX512 code path?

 

Kind Regards!

Hi Janez,


Thanks for posting in Intel Communities.


Could you please let us know the IPP version being used by you? If you are using an older version of oneAPI, we recommend you try using the latest oneAPI and let us know if the issue persists.

We are using latest version.  The issue seems to be complicated by the fact, that you need big (and slow) complicated test case to guard against and also to find this problem. This could be the reason why this has persisted for so many years.
