oneAPI Math Kernel Library (oneMKL) Interfaces

oneAPI logo

oneMKL Interfaces is an open-source implementation of the oneMKL Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) interface according to the oneMKL specification. It works with multiple devices (backends) using device-specific libraries underneath.

oneMKL is part of oneAPI.

Support and Requirements

Supported Usage Models:

There are two oneMKL selector layer implementations:

  • Run-time dispatching: The application is linked with the oneMKL library and the required backend is loaded at run-time based on device vendor (all libraries should be dynamic).

Example of app.cpp with run-time dispatching:

#include "oneapi/mkl.hpp"

...
cpu_dev = sycl::device(sycl::cpu_selector());
gpu_dev = sycl::device(sycl::gpu_selector());

sycl::queue cpu_queue(cpu_dev);
sycl::queue gpu_queue(gpu_dev);

oneapi::mkl::blas::column_major::gemm(cpu_queue, transA, transB, m, ...);
oneapi::mkl::blas::column_major::gemm(gpu_queue, transA, transB, m, ...);

How to build an application with run-time dispatching:

$> dpcpp -fsycl –I$ONEMKL/include app.cpp
$> dpcpp -fsycl app.o –L$ONEMKL/lib –lonemkl
  • Compile-time dispatching: The application uses a templated backend selector API where the template parameters specify the required backends and third-party libraries and the application is linked with the required oneMKL backend wrapper libraries (libraries can be static or dynamic).

Example of app.cpp with compile-time dispatching:

#include "oneapi/mkl.hpp"

...
cpu_dev = sycl::device(sycl::cpu_selector());
gpu_dev = sycl::device(sycl::gpu_selector());

sycl::queue cpu_queue(cpu_dev);
sycl::queue gpu_queue(gpu_dev);

oneapi::mkl::backend_selector<oneapi::mkl::backend::mklcpu> cpu_selector(cpu_queue);

oneapi::mkl::blas::column_major::gemm(cpu_selector, transA, transB, m, ...);
oneapi::mkl::blas::column_major::gemm(oneapi::mkl::backend_selector<oneapi::mkl::backend::cublas> {gpu_queue}, transA, transB, m, ...);

How to build an application with compile-time dispatching:

$> clang++ -fsycl –I$ONEMKL/include app.cpp
$> clang++ -fsycl app.o –L$ONEMKL/lib –lonemkl_blas_mklcpu –lonemkl_blas_cublas

FAQs

oneMKL

  1. What is the difference between the following oneMKL items?

Answer:

  • The oneAPI Specification for oneMKL defines the DPC++ interfaces for performance math library functions. The oneMKL specification can evolve faster and more frequently than implementations of the specification.

  • The oneAPI Math Kernel Library (oneMKL) Interfaces Project is an open source implementation of the specification. The project goal is to demonstrate how the DPC++ interfaces documented in the oneMKL specification can be implemented for any math library and work for any target hardware. While the implementation provided here may not yet be the full implementation of the specification, the goal is to build it out over time. We encourage the community to contribute to this project and help to extend support to multiple hardware targets and other math libraries.

  • The Intel(R) oneAPI Math Kernel Library (oneMKL) product is the Intel product implementation of the specification (with DPC++ interfaces) as well as similar functionality with C and Fortran interfaces, and is provided as part of Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit. It is highly optimized for Intel CPU and Intel GPU hardware.

Conan

  1. I am behind a proxy. How can Conan download dependencies from external network?

    • ~/.conan/conan.conf has a [proxies] section where you can add the list of proxies. For details refer to Conan proxy settings.
  2. I get an error while installing packages via APT through Conan.

    dpkg: warning: failed to open configuration file '~/.dpkg.cfg' for reading: Permission denied
    Setting up intel-oneapi-mkl-devel (2021.1-408.beta07) ...
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    
    • Although your user session has permissions to install packages via sudo apt, it does not have permissions to update debian package configuration, which throws an error code 1, causing a failure in conan install command.
    • The package is most likely installed correctly and can be verified by:
      1. Running the conan install command again.
      2. Checking /opt/intel/inteloneapi for mkl and/or tbb directories.
