Using CULA and CUBLAS at the same time?

Postby adrian_cg » Fri Jul 09, 2010 9:33 am

Hi @ll,

I have an algorithm where I want to use cula and cublas functions simultaneously. Will all cublas functions be avaliable when I include and use cula, since cula internally uses it?

Do I need to call both cublasInit() and culaInit() or is it enough to do culaInit() etc.?

Hi adrian, that is correct. culaInitialize will also initialize CUBLAS for you, so you can freely use both calls in between the culaInitialize/culaShutdown pair. However, it would not hurt to also initialize and shutdown cublas specifically because we do not guarantee that culaInitalize performs this operation - it is merely a side-effect.
