Segment violation ipp_zlib

Hi, we are using ipp_zlib (IPP 6.1 build 137.53) for our project to read/write the PNG images. Sometimes it produces Segment violation (SIGSEGV) exception by read image at the point ipp_zlib->inflate on PC with 6 CPUs (Intel Xeon CPU X5650 @2.67GHz). It could be good reproduce if more than one thread (at least 4 Threads) simultaneous try to read image. Is somebody knows this issue?

Gennady, yes, the attached zip-file contains test.bat file. If you need source i can also upload it. Thank you in advance.

Strange, i could not upload zip file..., now it's Ok. In Test folder is test_ipp_zLib.zip file.

Alexey,

Have you tried the latest version Intel IPP 7.0 and see if this issue is still reproducible?

If you have valid product license, you can go to Intel Registration Center at https://registrationcenter.intel.com to find the latest package, or try the evaluation version at Intel Evaluation Center at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-evaluation-center/

Thanks,

Ying

Ying,

we have only license for IPP 5 and 6 versions. I will ask our manager to buy a new one.

With old IPP 5.2 version our software is stable.

Alexey,
Actually, it seems to us we need more details from you.
We tried to check on problem on our side and all works fine with the latest IPP 6.1 update 5 and 6.
How long the test should works?
on my side,
the test was working for 20 minutes on my local Core2Duo and nothing happened...
Could you please elaborate more about the System and CPU you are working on?
May I ask you to incorporateippsGetLibVersion function into this test and provide the output of this function?

Gennady,
It can be happened after 10 Seconds. On my PC with CPU Intel Core i7 4 cores, I could not reproduce it, but our software will be running on target PC with 6 or more CPUs. The test, which has this exception, was reproduced on the Intel Xeon CPU X5650 @ 2.67GHz with 6 cores OS: Winows XP ProfessionalSP 3, and I saw also it on PC with 8 cores.

Name:ippsp8-6.1.dll+

Version:6.1.137.844
Build Date:Jan 23 2010

As I see you still use IPP 6.1. Is there any chance for you to try the latest version, which is IPP 7.0? There were some bug fixes in data compression samples and functions

Regards,
Vladimir
