Takes as input a previously allocated event. This event must have been created with the CU_EVENT_INTERPROCESS and CU_EVENT_DISABLE_TIMING flags set. This opaque handle may be copied into other processes and opened with cuIpcOpenEventHandle to allow efficient hardware synchronization between GPU work in different processes.
After the event has been been opened in the importing process, cuEventRecord, cuEventSynchronize, cuStreamWaitEvent and cuEventQuery may be used in either process. Performing operations on the imported event after the exported event has been freed with cuEventDestroy will result in undefined behavior.
IPC functionality is restricted to devices with support for unified addressing on Linux operating systems.
