Detailed Description

Interfaces for writing custom memory managers.

Create and set a custom memory manager by first defining the relevant closures for each required function, for example:

af_err my_initialize(af_memory_manager manager) {
void* myPayload = malloc(sizeof(MyPayload_t));
af_memory_manager_set_payload(manager, myPayload);
// ...
af_err my_allocated(af_memory_manager handle, size_t* size, void* ptr) {
void* myPayload;
af_memory_manager_get_payload(manager, &myPayload);
// ...
Definition: defines.h:71
void * af_memory_manager
Definition: memory.h:22
AFAPI af_err af_memory_manager_get_payload(af_memory_manager handle, void **payload)
Gets the payload ptr from an af_memory_manager.
AFAPI af_err af_memory_manager_set_payload(af_memory_manager handle, void *payload)
Sets the payload ptr from an af_memory_manager.

Create an af_memory_manager and attach relevant closures:

af_memory_manager_set_initialize_fn(manager, my_initialize);
af_memory_manager_set_allocated_fn(manager, my_allocated);
// ...
AFAPI af_err af_memory_manager_set_initialize_fn(af_memory_manager handle, af_memory_manager_initialize_fn fn)
Sets an af_memory_manager_initialize_fn for a memory manager.
AFAPI af_err af_create_memory_manager(af_memory_manager *out)
Creates an af_memory_manager handle.
AFAPI af_err af_memory_manager_set_allocated_fn(af_memory_manager handle, af_memory_manager_allocated_fn fn)
Sets an af_memory_manager_allocated_fn for a memory manager.

Set the memory manager to be active, which shuts down the existing memory manager:

AFAPI af_err af_set_memory_manager(af_memory_manager handle)
Sets an af_memory_manager to be the default memory manager for non-pinned memory allocations in Array...

Unset to re-create and reset an instance of the default memory manager:

AFAPI af_err af_unset_memory_manager()
Reset the memory manager being used in ArrayFire to the default memory manager, shutting down the exi...
