Image Memory Allocation

ImageAllocator methods for 2D arrays of data.

The allocators have width and height parameters to specify the size of the image data being allocated. They return a pointer to the newly created memory and return the numbers of bytes between successive lines.

If the memory allocation failed due to lack of free device memory or device memory fragmentation the routine returns 0.

All allocators return memory with line strides that are beneficial for performance. It is not mandatory to use these allocators. Any valid CUDA device-memory pointers can be used by the NPP primitives and there are no restrictions on line strides.

Detailed Description

Routines for allocating and deallocating pitched image storage.

These methods are provided for convenience. They allocate memory that may contain additional padding bytes at the end of each line of pixels. Though padding is not necessary for any of the NPP image-processing primitives to work correctly, its absense may cause sever performance degradation compared to properly padded images.

These functions can be found in the nppisu library. Linking to only the sub-libraries that you use can significantly save link time, application load time, and CUDA runtime startup time when using dynamic libraries.
