OpenCV is not showing improvement when running with IPP

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I installed latest IPP product and I have video processing code in OpenCV. I recompiled OpenCV with flag WITH_IPP however I don't see any performance improvement. What I'm missing ? How can I tell OpenCV is detecting the IPP ?

Now after make finish I'm getting error:

You need to apply this patch: https://github.com/opencv/opencv/pull/8109/files

Hi,

You may enable IPP on OpenCV by passing switches "-D WITH_IPP=ON -D IPPROOT=<Your IPP Location>" to cmake command like the following. 

cmake -D WITH_IPP=ON -D IPPROOT=<Your IPP Location> .

For more detailed information, please refer to https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/enabling-ipp-on-opencv-windows-and-linux-ubintu

/* ****************************************** */

To confirm how your OpenCV works with IPP, please check in version_string.tmp under your OpenCV build directory.

Suppose you follow the following official OpenCV installation guide, you will find the version_string.tmp under ~/opencv/release.

  1. Create a temporary directory, which we denote as <cmake_binary_dir>, where you want to put the generated Makefiles, project files as well the object files and output binaries.

  2. Enter the <cmake_binary_dir> and type

    cmake [<some optional parameters>] <path to the OpenCV source directory>
    

    For example

    cd ~/opencv
    mkdir release
    cd release
    cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local ..
    
  3. Enter the created temporary directory (<cmake_binary_dir>) and proceed with:

    make
    sudo make install

Thanks for reply. Still not working.

I got the version_string.tmp file.

Why I see ?

Your log indicates that OpenCV was not built with IPP support.

Please follow the following steps to compile OpenCV with IPP.

Suppose your root directory of IPP is <IPPROOT>. It should be similar to "/opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries(_2017 or _2017.x.yyy or null)/linux/ipp".

  1. Create a temporary directory, which we denote as <cmake_binary_dir>, where you want to put the generated Makefiles, project files as well the object files and output binaries.

  2. Enter the <cmake_binary_dir> and type

    cmake [<some optional parameters>] <path to the OpenCV source directory>

    For example

    cd ~/opencv
    mkdir release
    cd release
    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DWITH_IPP=ON -DIPPROOT=<IPPROOT> ..
  3. Enter the created temporary directory (<cmake_binary_dir>) and proceed with:

    make
    sudo make install

If these do not work for your compiling, could you share more detailed information like your command line history to compile OpenCV, and where is your IPP root directory, and so on, please?

Specified DIPPROOT=/opt/intel/ipp

Now a version is detected but I'm getting failure.

Any advise how to resolve those ?

Could you share us your compiling command history, CMakeCache.txt and version_string.tmp with us, please? (Starting from unzip opencv from the zip file)

Besides, did you install the IPP with Intel System Studio or Intel Parallel Studio or using standalone package?

The main command I'm using is:

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DWITH_IPP=ON -DIPPROOT=/opt/intel/ipp ..

 

Also attached the requested files.

 

Thanks, Eitan

It seems to be all right from these two files.

Have you tried to run make to compile OpenCV after the cmake command?

eitan_s_

644 Views

yes, make command fail.

Notice that I have errors for cmake

Maybe I install IPP incorrectly ?

How can I check that IPP is install correctly ?

Can you point me to the install instructions for IPP over ubuntu ?

Hi Eitan,

-- Can't find compiler library: irc at /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.098/linux/compiler/lib/intel64/libirc.so
-- Can't find compiler library: imf at /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.098/linux/compiler/lib/intel64/libimf.so

These libraries shouldn't be required for IPP 2017, build scripts are a little out of date.

yes, make command fail.

Can you also attach your make log?

The main problem is that I'm not getting a Makefile so I can't run make :(

By the way when dropping "DIPPROOT" and just running - cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DWITH_IPP=ON ..    than cmake works well and also make.

Other third-party libraries:
--     Use IPP:                     9.0.1 [9.0.1]
--          at:                     /home/eitans/opencv/build/3rdparty/ippicv/ippicv_lnx
--     Use IPP Async:               NO
--     Use VA:                      NO
--     Use Intel VA-API/OpenCL:     NO
--     Use Lapack:                  NO
--     Use Eigen:                   NO
--     Use Cuda:                    NO
--     Use OpenCL:                  YES   
--     Use OpenVX:                  NO
--     Use custom HAL:              NO

The problem in that case is that I don't see any improvement later on when using OpenCV and so I assume it is not using the IPP product :(

Looking more in OpenCVFindIPP.cmake I see difference between ICV and standalone IPP

Any idea why we have this difference ?

We are failing on     _ipp_add_library(m)

=======================

if(HAVE_IPP_ICV_ONLY)
    _ipp_add_library(icv)
  else()
    _ipp_add_library(core)
    _ipp_add_library(s)
    _ipp_add_library(i)
    _ipp_add_library(cc)
    _ipp_add_library(cv)
    _ipp_add_library(vm)
    _ipp_add_library(m)

You are using release OpenCV 3.1, right? Can you update to 3.2? As I remember there were compatibility updates for IPP 2017. I can configure OpenCV 3.2 with IPP 2017.0.0 without any problem. There are some building problems, but I can help to fix them.

Other third-party libraries:
--     Use IPP:                     9.0.1 [9.0.1]
--          at:                     /home/eitans/opencv/build/3rdparty/ippicv/ippicv_lnx

 

The problem in that case is that I don't see any improvement later on when using OpenCV and so I assume it is not using the IPP product :(

This is a special IPP package for OpenCV which downloads by default. It has some limitations, but there is no guaranty that you are using any OpenCV function with IPP optimizations at all.

You can check performance difference by using cv::ipp::setUseIPP(bool) function before OpenCV calls.

After removing the library _ipp_add_library(m) I'm getting error around

message(SEND_ERROR "Intel compiler EM64T libraries not found")

I think the problem is that I'm missing soft link under:   /opt/intel/lib

intel64 ==> intel64_lin

so I added it

Now after make finish I'm getting error:

Regarding ICV you wrote:

This is a special IPP package for OpenCV which downloads by default. It has some limitations, but there is no guaranty that you are using any OpenCV function with IPP optimizations at all.

[EITANS]  "there is no guaranty" .... is that a general statement or only when using ICV ?

 

You can check performance difference by using cv::ipp::setUseIPP(bool) function before OpenCV calls.

[EITANS] Can you elaborate how to use it and what does it tells me ?
